New Vinegar Hill Receives Flash Funding

School of Architecture’s Assistant Professor Elgin Cleckley, along with faculty collaborators from the Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, recently received funding for their proposal, the New Vinegar Hill project. UVA’s Flash Funding program was announced in early September to support projects that work toward, “achieving the culture and environment we value,” with a preference for ideas that address unconscious bias and racial tension. The project team, including A-School students, Tarin Jones, My-Anh Nguyen, and Henok Waltengus, will help C-ville develop a community-driven checklist for approaching future redevelopment.
