RiverFirst in the News

Last year was an exciting one for the RiverFirst Capital Campaign: 2018 ended with a $1 Million Anchor grant from Bank of America for Water Works and the Great Northern Greenway River Link, bringing our signature projects closer to groundbreaking.

With the grant announcement in November, the two park projects are back in the media spotlight. Here is a selection of media coverage about the Anchor grant and RiverFirst. We invite you enjoy them and share the links with others!
