SLHA awarded Neighborhood Transformation grant to revitalize five public housing communities

April 18, 2024 – Families residing in five St. Louis Housing Authority public housing developments will soon enjoy revitalized living spaces, thanks to a $238,690 award from the City of St. Louis Community Development Administration’s (CDA) 2024 Neighborhood Transformation grant.

The funding will be used to support resident-directed projects aimed at improving neighborhood aesthetics and increasing resident engagement at Parkview, Euclid, West Pine, Northside Scattered Sites, and Renaissance at Grand apartment communities. The future holds exciting possibilities, from new landscapes and signage to gardens to dynamic murals, all of which will improve the physical and social conditions of each community.

Latasha Barnes, Interim Executive Director of SLHA, highlighted the positive impact of resident involvement in neighborhood beautification, stating, “Research shows that resident involvement is positively linked to a sense of community. We are pleased that the Community Development Administration chose to invest in SLHA’s families and developments.” She added, “This beautification program will boost resident pride and ownership of their living environments and nurture leadership skills that foster more inclusive communities.”

To support these efforts, SLHA is seeking to hire a Program Coordinator and an intern. They will work closely with the Tenant Advisory Boards (TABs) and residents in achieving their long-term vision for their communities. Key responsibilities include organizing resident outreach and engagement, managing volunteers, coordinating service learning opportunities, and soliciting community support.  Interested applicants should visit for the complete job descriptions and to apply.
