Mid City Redevelopment Alliance & Urban Restoration Enhancement Corporation were selected by the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center to receive $35,000 grants from their Community Revitalization Fund. Funds will be used to support efforts to preserving and promote housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income households in Baton Rouge.

The John W. Barton, Sr. Excellence in Nonprofit Management Award is presented annually to three directors of non-profit organizations in the Baton Rouge Area.

The award is named as a tribute to Mr. Barton, who led a group that created the Baton Rouge Area Foundation in 1964. 
The Foundation honored the Barton winners at its Annual Meeting on March 19, 2014. Each honoree received a check for $10,000. 

2014 Honorees: 
Samuel Sanders (MCRA), Major Stephen Long (The Salvation Army) and Timothy Muffit (Baton Rouge Symphony).

The mission of Mid City Redevelopment Alliance is to develop and promote the growth and renewal of the Mid City region of Baton Rouge by attracting new and retaining current residents and businesses
