We all have great ideas. But turning ideas into action is harder than one might think, especially in neglected areas with limited resources.

Since 2015, the Urban Action Network supported local activists and community-based organizations to create and promote community solutions. UAct provided in-kind, hands-on project management assistance to design, develop, execute and sustain community-based projects and activities. We provided tools, resources and connections to help local activists and organizations realize their goals.

Now, in 2023, UAct is redirecting its approach to promote community-based micro projects that provide social, economic and/or environmental benefit in East Springfield, IL by supporting annual RESTORE THE CORE grants awarded to qualifying groups seeking neighborhood/community improvement.
