RAISE Resources

The City of Kent, in partnership with Kent State University and the Portage Area Regional Transit Authority, has applied for a RAISE grant for the Reimagining the Gateway East Main Street Corridor project.

This project will make significant multi-modal improvements to a nearly one-mile, car-centric section of East Main St. that includes the university, entrances to nearby neighborhoods and many commercial destinations.
