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. Read more at   and Use the hashtag #LAGreatStreets!

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.
