About Community, Not a Commute: Investing Beyond the Rail

Jun 22, 2016
  • Description

The Central Corridor Funders Collaborative (2007 – 2016) was an innovative partnership supported by 14 local and national foundations seeking to create a "corridor of opportunity" along Minneapolis and Saint Paul's Green Line Light Rail Transit (LRT). The Funders Collaborative supplemented the programs and grantmaking of its member foundations by working with community organizations, the business sector, and public agencies to encourage collaboration, planning, and investment beyond the rail. The Green Line opened in June 2014, and the Funders Collaborative concluded its work two years later in June 2016 as planned.
