   The ORA will be hosting a virtual, web-based meeting to explain how to apply for the Renaissance Block Challenge and related ORA grant programs. During the meeting, ORA Director Paul Stewart will provide a broad outline of the purpose of the programs and discuss how your City of Oswego neighborhood could benefit. There will also be a Question and Answer Session.

2. If you don't meet the above criterion, email the ORA in advance to see if your block can still be considered. We have worked with      blocks outside the Target Zones many times. 
3. Please familiarize yourself with the basics by reading the Renaissance Block Challenge Page.

4. EMAIL the ORA to request registration to attend. You will receive a response with more information (generally within 24 hours).

Target Zones are neighborhood areas in Oswego that will be prioritized for funding in the first several years of ORA programs. There are 4 Target Zones in the City of Oswego. These target zones were chosen by an independent neighborhood revitalization consulting firm (CZB, llc), and are based upon a Neighborhood Revitalization Plan for Oswego. If you neighborhood is inside a Target Zone, your application will receive special consideration.  For more information on what being inside or outside of a target zone means, see Target Zone FAQ.
