paterson neighborhoodAs part of Together North Jersey’s outreach efforts, the NGO Micro Grant recipients will be organizing a “Discovery Phase” Workshop on behalf of Together North Jersey.

The purpose of these workshops is for our grant recipients to engage constituents from the general public as well as groups that have been traditionally underrepresented (e.g., African Americans, Latinos, immigrants, disabled persons, elderly, youth, and lower-income residents) in the planning process.

Similar to our past “Discovery” Workshops, these events will focus on exploring the questions: “Where are we now? Where are we headed?”  We will also be framing discussions about key concerns and trends that affect the economic vitality, health and safety of their community.

All workshops that have been scheduled are listed below.  This information is also available on our events calendar.

Workshop results for neighborhood outreach of the NGO Micro-Grant recipients are here.
