The Trinity project is an affiliation of public entities working together to revitalize San Antonio's urban neighborhoods. The Trinity Project includes SA2020, a community effort to plan San Antonio's future through the next decade, and the Family Service Association, a local social service agency.
Currently, the Trinity Project is collaborating on the revitalization of the Dignowity Hill neighborhood with support from a Promise Neighborhood Grant from the U.S. Department of Education, and a Choice Neighborhoods grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The Trinity Project, a name coined by San Antonio mayor Julián Castro, was the idea of Christine Drennon, Ph.D., professor of sociology and anthropology, and director of the University's urban studies program. Drennon proposed a meeting of the public entities to discuss and collaborate on creating a more unified approach in creating strategic plans to revitalize sections of the city economically and socially.
The public entities accepted Drennon's invitation and, after a few meetings, pledged to work together in what has become a unique collaboration. Trinity assists the collaboration as a think tank for the project, recommending policy proposals based on research conducted by Trinity professors and students.
