The Neighbors Excelling Together Program (NExT) is a comprehensive, long-term approach to transforming neighborhoods. It builds community infrastructure, beginning with residents and other community stakeholders by strengthening their capacity to voice their needs, develop strategies, and form the partnerships necessary to create good lives to live, work, play, and raise families. The program is being implemented in nine neighborhoods in San Francisco, Oakland, and Richmond with focus on the Excelsior and Chinatown neighborhoods in San Francisco and Nystrom neighborhood in Richmond.
The program engages local residents and stakeholders to build solutions for their community in the following areas:
- Developing, preserving, and investing in the physical environment
- Increasing family income and wealth
- Stimulating economic activity, locally and regionally
- Fostering livable, safe, and healthy environments and lifestyles
- Improving access to quality education
