Vote for LINC: Help us win $45,000 in Erhardt's Building Our Community contest!

Posted: 06-18-2012

LINC is happy to announce our participation in Erhardt Construction’s 50th Anniversary Building Our Community Contest. Our organization has a chance to win a $45,000 construction project or cash donations from the contest, but we need your help. The public will be able to vote for their favorite and most deserving non-profit organization. You can vote once per day at

We plan to use the $45,000 to renovate the currently vacant commercial space at 1363 Grandville Ave SW (Roosevelt Park Lofts) to expand revitalization efforts and services to the Latino community on the southwest side of Grand Rapids. As we work to strengthen people, places and linkages to holistically revitalize neighborhoods in Kent County, this contest provides the perfect opportunity to meet the needs of the southwest community in Grand Rapids.

Upon completion of the construction project, the building will provide a space for businesses to thrive, for local entrepreneurs to work and collaborate; a space for individuals and families to work on improving their futures; and a common space for community groups and organizations to gather, offering programs and services to residents and neighbors.

This physical presence within the neighborhood will allow us to meet people where they are and take our revitalization efforts to scale, changing lives and expanding opportunities for individuals and families in a holistic and authentic way.

Join us in meeting the needs of our neighbors and VOTE for LINC today, tomorrow and everyday!
