Targeted Neighborhood Initiative - Joseph C. Cornwall Center for Metropolitan Studies Skip to main content

The Thriving Neighborhood Initiative (TNI) is a comprehensive community development program focused on the revitalization of the Fairmount and Upper Clinton Hill communities in Newark, two of the city’s poorest neighborhoods. The Thriving Neighborhoods Initiative was conceived and funded by the Victoria Foundation, with the Greater Newark Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) as the lead organizing partner working to improve the quality of life

in these neighborhoods by supporting the development of neighborhood leadership. The aspiration is for this to be a resident-driven process. Cornwall is documenting the work and assessing impact.
