The Seattle Chinatown–International District Preservation and Development Authority (SCIDpda) received a $20,000 grant from the Bank of America foundation this fall to support the organization’s design and resource center, IDEA Space. IDEA Space will use the funds to further the organization’s commercial development program, focusing on urban design and real estate.
The grant is part of a $22 million investment by Bank of America to build and support affordable housing, offer foreclosure prevention services and homeowner counseling, and provide other services intended to revive neighborhoods. Over 380,000 individuals in the Puget Sound area will be impacted by the programs supported through Bank of America grants. (end)
