equip richmond – by the numbers
eQuip Richmond goes beyond traditional revitalization strategies to uplift residents and address the economic needs of the whole community. The goal is to establish partnerships that can enhance existing opportunities to build capacity, create and fill jobs with local hires, and improve conditions for local residents.

eQuip Richmond was built by the community, for the community: 27 organizations contributed to the initiative’s planning process. Projects of eQuip Richmond include the Construction Resource Center, Pogo Park, Cobiz Richmond, the Center for Employment Training, Catholic Charities Barrier Removal Call Center and the eQuip Mobile App. Chevron’s $10 million investment in eQuip works to build on existing human capital and leverage additional resources from businesses, foundations and institutions. Learn more about how eQuip Richmond is working to create a better community for all of us.
