The Citi Foundation Community Progress Makers Program provides $500,000 in unrestricted grant funding over two years to help community organizations lead urban transformation efforts that catalyze economic opportunities for low-income households and communities. These visionary community organizations serve as champions of change, adopting new approaches, and coordinating the effects of multiple partners to create stronger, more resilient cities. Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) works to improve economic and social conditions for Latino families in San Francisco’s Mission District while preserving the cultural identity of the community. As a Community Progress Maker, MEDA pursues aggressive strategies to create greater housing stability, pathways to economic progress, and improved educational and employment outcomes for low-and moderate-income Latino families in the Mission District who are adversely impacted by rising housing costs in their neighborhood and citywide.
