Building a Healthy Corridor Grant
Nearly one year ago, The Urban Land Institute (ULI) Nashville received a grant from ULI through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Colorado Health Foundation to study a four-mile stretch of Charlotte Avenue from 1-40 to White Bridge Road. The grant is being used to work with community partners to seek ways the corridor can develop in ways that improves the health of people who live, work and travel there.
In August, nearly 90 community stakeholders met to help focus the grant work down to four key focus areas, within which ‘quick wins’ were identified in addition to longer term action steps.
This week, ULI and ULI Nashville hosts a National Study Team to add expertise from around the country to identify Implementation Actions, culminating in concise recommendations presented this Friday at OneC1ty.
ULI Nashville wants to recognize the ULI members on the ULI Nashville Grant Management Team, who have devoted hours of time, expertise and passion to elevate understanding and action on issues and opportunities of health in development:
