GAP Grant Highlights

The Green Avenue Area Civic Association is excited about its Grant Assistance Partnership (GAP) project, which included adding an ADA accessible picnic table and walking path to the green space in the park area. The picnic area will be an additional place for residents to gather in the park for neighborhood fellowship. The concrete walkway has already been installed and the picnic table is scheduled to be installed in the spring.

GAP funding is made available by the City of Greenville and Greenville County Redevelopment Authority through their Community Development Block Grant programs, which are funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), along with funds from the United Way of Greenville County.
