Community's Dedication Wins Grant
The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation awarded a $4.5 million Hewlett Foundation Grant to help bring affordable housing, jobs, and technology training to the city's residents. The foundation required that the residents craft a spending plan themselves. After a long day at work when they would have prefered to be at home for dinner, East Palo Alto reseidents met one night a week for six months in an elementary school to develop the proposal that was approved.
