green|spaces has been selected as a Pay for Success grant recipient from the Corporation for National and Community Service.
"The $50,000 grant will help bring new services to residents in Chattanooga," officials said. "The Pay for Success grant provides funding and technical assistance services to develop sustainable in-home projects that work to solve structural health risks found in many neighborhoods. With this funding, green|spaces will be able to develop and implement groundbreaking projects that will provide in-home resident education and services to improve overall health.
These services will bring a better quality of life for low-income children, families, and seniors.
"green|spaces' mission is to advance the sustainability of living, working, and building in Chattanooga and the surrounding region. With the Pay for Success grant, green|spaces will find innovative solutions for issues such as asthma triggers for children."
“We are excited to be working with partners who are as passionate about sustainability as we are at green|spaces,” said Michael Walton, executive director of green|spaces. “We are committed to creating spaces that are not only good for the environment but healthy and safe for the residents living in them. Through Pay for Success, we will develop new ways to scale services that in the end make a home truly a home, not a health risk.”
