Both the Asian American Civic Association and the Kwong Kow Chinese School were awarded grants by the city of Boston’s Partners with Non-Profits program to help with building maintenance and improvement work.
The AACA plans on using the money to finish a project that placed echo-reducing material on the ceilings of its facility’s classrooms. Only half of the project had been completed with money received last year.
The KKCS plans on using the money to replace the carpet on the second and third floor of its facility as it had become dirty, according to Kwong Kow Chinese School Principal Evonne Liu. Both the AACA and Kwong Kow share a building at 87 Tyler Street in Boston.
