INVESTMENT

The Great Places 2020 initiative collected Co-Investment Commitments from partners that are working together to transform these three strategic places.  Partners were asked to indicate what they were committed to contributing and, where applicable, identify a dollar amount.  These commitments represent a fraction of the planned work in the Great Places, as many partners were not ready to reveal publicly their projects in the works.

As of May 10, 2016,  over $84 million has been pledged to Great Places 2020 from over 50 partners.
