Over the course of 2022, Neighborhood Support conducted and released a Needs Assessment and Policy Brief informed by residents, community leaders, business owners, and other key stakeholders to better understand the pressing challenges facing Lower Manhattan. These two reports help ground and guide our work.
Together with our Neighborhood Council, an advisory group comprised of community members, Neighborhood Support continues to center community voice in every programmatic endeavor. We are honored to be journeying alongside these exceptional individuals to think together about the contributions we can jointly make to strengthen our neighborhood.
