Partners in Progress Gives Voice to Flushing, NY Residents
The Flushing 2050 Community Initiative began to take shape last month thanks to Partners in Progress (PIP), a collaboration created by Asian Americans for Equality and funded by LIIF and Citi Foundation. The community development support aims to increase economic progress in low-income communities such as Flushing, by fostering collaborating across sectors and stakeholders.
Highlighted in the Times Ledger, phase one of the initiative will officially launch in March with a series of workshops and meetings to discuss the future of Flushing’s economy. Results of the residential survey will allow the neighborhood to plan for its future, including family support and job growth.
