The Point Neighbourhood Community Space in Salem, MA


A Community Development Coalition in Salem, Massachusetts has raised $30,000 USD from over 100 backers to convert a 2,000 square foot area in a new-renovated affordable housing development into a multi-purpose community space with a shared kitchen, a games room, meeting rooms and conference space.  This project was successful in reaching its goal because the State Economic Development Agency provided $30,000 in matching funds, effectively doubling everyone’s contributions for a total funding of $60,000 USD.
