Mayor Eric Garcetti launched the Great Streets Initiative in October 2013 to help re-imagine neighborhood centers, one main street
at a time. Our streets are the backbone of our neighborhoods – the places where we live, work, learn, and recreate on a daily basis.
All of our great neighborhoods deserve Great Streets that are livable, accessible and engaging public spaces for the people who
live and work around them. With this Community Challenge Grant, the Great Streets Initiative will partner with the community to showcase these Great Streets and their potential to serve as vibrant public spaces.

All donations given to a Great Streets campaign will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Great Streets Initiative. That means your $150 donation to any of the projects below becomes $300, and a $35 gift means $70 for the project, going twice as far to make Los Angeles' public spaces more livable, accessible and engaged.
Connect the Dots | Van Nuys brings neighbors together with cyclists and designers to reimagine Van Nuys Boulevard at its fullest potential, solving our city's transit, public space, and water-supply needs.
YES for a Healthier South LA is a youth-driven event on Central Avenue in South LA that will demonstrate how public space can be reimagined as safe, vibrant and active for all members of the community.
