Grant Type:

Chelsea Coalition on Housing is planning a campaign to mobilize the community to help remove the local post office from the government's official list of post office closings. According to the coalition, the closure "would affect primarily people of color, immigrants, seniors, the handicapped, and the poor, as well as local businesses and the local economy." Group members are meeting with locally elected officials, outreaching to over 1,000 residents, and coordinating joint efforts to stop the closure.
