Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District is one of the nation’s leading organizations for best practices in sustainable urban development — driving the revitalization of an emerging arts and cultural district in Newark, New Jersey. What started out as an engaging neighborhood participatory planning process over a decade ago has culminated in the creation of the Lincoln Park Redevelopment Plan and the development of a national award-winning green and safe, musically rich neighborhood in the historical Lincoln Park district in Newark, New Jersey.

LPCCD has made great strides, including commencing construction on a $21 million, 66 affordable housing project, the launch of a farm, the stabilization of the South Park Calvary Presbyterian Church Façade (the Facade), the instructing and job placement of graduates of the NJ Department of Labor’s Green Job Training Program and certification as a United States Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (USGBC LEED) Gold Neighborhood Development project.

With your philanthropic support, LPCCD will continue to transform a low-income neighborhood in Newark, New Jersey from blighted lots into an urban sustainable community featuring 125 LEED United States Green Building Council certified units, music festivals, historic restoration projects and the Museum of African American Music, a Smithsonian Affiliate.
