The Partnership

A comprehensive strategy that seeks to re-create and rebuild a distressed neighborhood cannot happen without the development of a collaborative consisting of partners that will actively participate in the development of the project.  The Perry Choice neighborhood collaborative is dynamic group that will be continually growing and developing.

The collaborative consists of two types of partners. One group of partners will participate directly in the development and implementation of the core project programs, while the other set of partners will be "Friends of the Perry Choice Neighborhood," and they will provide varied support for the project, including telling others about the project and its benefits to the neighborhood, city and region.

Current Partners

The BMHA-HUD Choice Neighborhood Planning Initiative is a collaborative, which is based on the development of a network of partners.  The current list of partners is not fixed, but will continue to grow and develop throughout the life of the project.
