Join us for a panel discussion on the economic development boom in Newark.  Our diverse panel will discuss the downtown real estate picture, efforts toward inclusive development, neighborhood re-development initiatives, small business support, the cultivation of entrepreneurs, and the arts as an economic driver.  Newark’s growth is dynamic and multi-faceted, and this panel discussion will provide an opportunity for a comprehensive briefing on efforts throughout the city.  It will be followed by a funder discussion on how our grant making can be supportive of Newark’s new economic environment, particularly for Newark residents.
