Greenville Community Partnership
Our Founder & CEO Angela V. McKnight is the 2nd Vice Chair of The I Love Greenville Community Partnership (GCP) committee. GCP is a neighborhood association located in the Greenville Neighborhood of Jersey City, New Jersey. Centered on MLK Drive, the neighborhood boundaries are Union St, Ocean Ave, Woodlawn Ave and Bergen Ave. The neighborhood faces challenges like: 40% of the City’s foreclosures; an area median income half of the City’s median income; and, has between a 17-20% unemployment rate.
The GCP formed in late 2011 as an effort to improve quality of life issues in in-and-around MLK Drive. Administrated by Garden State Episcopal CDC, GCP is made of up residents, stakeholders, business owners, houses of worship and non-profit organizations that service the community. As our first order of business we completed a neighborhood plan that sets goals and devised strategies and activities to reach those goals. The final plan can be viewed below.
In the Fall of 2013, the GCP received word that the neighborhood plan was accepted in the New Jersey Department of Community Affair’s, Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit program. Most recently, GSECDC was notified that GCP’s “I Love Greenville Phase One” proposal was accepted into the qualified project’s pool for the Fall 2013 NRTC program.
