Community Challenge Grant Funds help Excelsior Community realize project proposed in 2010
The Excelsior Action Group is happy to announce that it has received Community Challenge Grant funding for its Excelsior Art and Greening Gallery project!
“This Community Challenge Grant will enable the Excelsior Action Group and SF Clean City Coalition to
realize a greening and art project that community members have been calling for since the 2010 Excelsior Art
Summit,” said Excelsior Action Executive Director Group Nicole Agbayani. “The Excelsior Art and Greening
Gallery will have a tremendous positive impact on the neighborhood, especially the shopping district. Most
importantly, it helps to demonstrate that ideas formed through grassroots community processes are valuable and
actionable in San Francisco.”
The 28 Community Challenge Grant recipients were announced on July 5th by Mayor Edwin M. Lee and City Administrator Naomi Kelly. "'Community Challenge Grants allow the City to partner with our diverse communities to make immediate improvements to our public spaces,' said Mayor Lee. 'We are inspired by these twenty-eight innovative projects that will bring neighbors together to keep the City beautiful and make real, long-term investments in our neighborhoods.'"
