2019 APPLICATION open now

We’re looking for Community Partners! Unlike traditional grant programs, the Great Streets Challenge is looking for partners who will identify a corridor they want to improve and, if selected, will work closely with the City and a consultant to develop a vision and conduct community outreach.  

See below the 2019 Community Partners Application Guide, which will support you through the application process, provide you with application requirements, instructions, and a scoring criteria. You may download the Application Guide here.

You can find the Challenge grant training presentation here.

We created a specialized Great Streets Mapping Tool to help applicants answer the 2019 application questions. Many of our partners found the map helpful on a variety of other projects. Feel free to email us at greatstreets@lacity.org if you'd like more information about the data.

Non-profits, community-based organizations and faith centers with 501(c)(3) status, schools, and universities, business improvement districts (BIDs) or businesses registered in the City of Los Angeles and Chambers of Commerce are all encouraged to apply.
