The Neighborhood Revitalization Project

Where a person lives impacts a person’s ability to access economic, education, environmental health, and other opportunities.

The purpose of the Neighborhood Revitalization Project (the project) is to address and eliminate systemic barriers to safe and habitable neighborhoods through outreach, education, collaboration, and litigation.  The project will focus on revitalizing two (2) neighborhoods in East Bakersfield.  These impoverished neighborhoods have a high concentration of low-income renters, blight, and dilapidated housing.  The project aims to create safe and habitable rental housing as well as home ownership opportunities for residents in the targeted neighborhoods.
