While not specifically funded as Transform Fresno / TCC, these other projects are doing great things in the area.
We will continue to add more as we work together to build a greater Fresno.
Fresno DRIVE Initiative
The Fresno DRIVE Initiative (Developing the Region’s Inclusive and Vibrant Economy) is a 10-year community investment plan drafted with input from a 300-person steering committee representing over 150 organizations in the Greater Fresno Region. The comprehensive plan identified a portfolio of investable initiatives aimed at increasing economic mobility and addressing racial disparities. The plan is comprised of 19 initiatives in three sectors: economic development, human capital and neighborhood development. The Urban Institute’s 2018 research on economic mobility in California's largest cities revealed that Fresno ranks 59th out of 59 for economic and racial disparity.
