Ujima's Neighborhood Investment Plans

#AnotherBostonIsHappening

Your neighborhood. Your business.

Boston Ujima Project has a purpose-driven plan to improve our neighborhoods and grow our local economy.

We've spoken to hundreds of Boston residents and our members to create investment plans geared toward the products and services we need most.

Our Investment Plans

We plan to directly support and grow the "Businesses We Love" in our community-generated Neighborhood Investment Plans with a suite of resources, support, and advocacy. Read about our offerings by visiting our Good Business Alliance page.
