The Green Impact Zone was instrumental in bringing together partners and funding for a number of visible improvements to neighborhoods and infrastructure. The zone also advanced a number of employment and training opportunities and helped build neighborhood leadership capacity.

Key achievements of the Green Impact Zone and its partners include:

Increased neighborhood capacity

Employment and training

Catalytic redevelopment projects and infrastructure improvements

The Green Impact Zone initiative also resulted in a replicable model for community revitalization. Key elements of the model include working at a large enough scale to change the market; investing in both people and place; and balancing both sides of the equation by closing the gap between community needs on one side and those with resources on the other.
