Equity Fund Allocation to New Hill Development Corporation: $500,000

Agenda item No. 4 | Resolution | 1st of 1 reading | Issue: Nonprofit

This item would authorize $500,000 to a start-up nonprofit, New Hill Development Corporation to conduct financial training programs and draft a small area plan for the Starr Hill neighborhood, including the former historical community of Vinegar Hill, towards building Charlottesville’s African-American middle class. The donation agreement requires New Hill to provide three-and six-month updates to the city council. This requested allocation is 30% of the Council Reserve Fund for Racial Equity and Engagement, which the council created on December 18 2017. Before this vote, the fund’s balance was $1.53 million [2][3][4]
