Inclusive Communities Project’s Neighborhood Equity & Options Program
ICP’s Neighborhood Equity and Options (NEO) program addresses the vestiges of racial segregation in neighborhoods without adequate services and facilities. ICP’s activities under its NEO program engage a twofold approach. Efforts in targeted neighborhoods include: (1) outreach and advocacy that seek government action to address issues such as environmental hazards, blight, and public safety and (2) housing mobility services for housing choice voucher holders through its Mobility Assistance Program. As part of its Voices for Opportunity Advocacy Training Initiative, ICP offers residents training as they fight for equity in their southern and west Dallas neighborhoods. ICP’s zoning trainings have become known by many Dallas residents. Free online zoning videos may be accessed by following the Inclusive Communities Project on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/user53337099. Videos are available in English and Spanish.
