by The 100 Companies

A University of South Florida research team was awarded a $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation to help build more equitable communities.

The grant, which also includes researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, will fund a project to establish practices to improve civil and environmental engineering curricula by providing students with equitable development-focused training.

The project focuses on the East Tampa Community Redevelopment Area – home to 38,000 residents and many historic African American neighborhoods. USF will be partnering with East Tampa businesses and community members to improve local neighborhoods and prevent disparities in urban infrastructure.
