On Tuesday, November 26, at Corona Plaza, NYC DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan and New York City Council Member Julissa Ferreras announced an $800,000 leadership gift from Chase to Neighborhood Plaza Partnership (NPP).

This gift ensures that the DOT’s community partners in under-resourced neighborhoods will have the support they need to maintain clean, green, and vibrant public plazas. NPP provides those partners with affordable, high-quality plaza maintenance and horticulture care via the workforce development programs of The Horticultural Society (The Hort) and The Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless (ACE NY).

In partnership with Chase, NPP is creating jobs and helping stabilize New York City neighborhoods. Together, they will ensure that the DOT Plaza Program flourishes in every borough.
