Fund the Gateway Arts District

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

We request your assistance in urging DHCD to reconsider the distribution of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) PY 40 grant awards. Without continued funding to our organizations, neighboring cities and towns, reinvestment possibilities and the sustainability of the Gateway Arts District are put at risk.

Why is this important?

Funding from Prince George’s County Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is critical to the infrastructure and community program operations for the smaller and older municipalities within the Gateway Arts District.

As a stakeholder in the community, I would like to stress how dire this funding is for our communities. We work, live and invest in these communities. Towns like North Brentwood and Brentwood need this funding. Organizations like the Gateway CDC, Joe’s Movement Emporium, Art Works Now, the Prince George’s African American Museum and Cultural Center, the Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council are partners in revitalizing and driving economic growth along U.S. Route 1 – county support is critical in ensuring the success and stability of these organizations and communities in the Gateway Arts District.
