But turning ideas into action is harder than one might think, especially in neglected areas with limited resources.
Since 2015, the Urban Action Network supported local activists and community-based organizations to create and promote community solutions. UAct provided in-kind, hands-on project management assistance to design, develop, execute and sustain community-based projects and activities. We provided tools, resources and connections to help local activists and organizations realize their goals.
Now, in 2023, UAct is redirecting its approach to promote community-based micro projects that provide social, economic and/or environmental benefit in East Springfield, IL by supporting annual RESTORE THE CORE grants awarded to qualifying groups seeking neighborhood/community improvement.
