Arlington Street Community Center Request for Space


In May 2016, a MBK summit attended by over 70 community agencies and city departments identified the need for a community center, based on a community school model, which is both a place and a set of partnerships between the schools and other community resources. Programs within the Community Center will be filled by community stakeholders filing a request for space with the Community Center executive committee. These programs must be integrated with those of other community partners so that all resources are focused on common goals and used effectively and efficiently.

Funding for the community center will consist of encouraging community partners to bring their programs into the center and encouraging the center to reach out into the community therefore pulling together existing resources and redirecting them to support the programs that the center offers.

Community partners wishing to apply for space should complete the attached request for proposal. Included are suggested area of focus as identified by community surveys, other programs may be considered.  Please attach your application electronically and email it, along with any questions, to: no later than July 5, 2017 for programs starting September 2017.  Additional program phases will be announced in August.

Upon approval of your application, documentation for the city’s in-kind matching contribution will be provided to organizations wishing to apply for grant funding on behalf of their organizations.

Please email with any questions.
