was founded in 1982 by a group of determined residents and stakeholders to focus on housing, crime prevention, economic development and youth leadership. Over the years, CONEA has worked with Flower City Habitat for Humanity to create several single family homes and apply for grants through the New York State Affordable Housing Foundation, to help improve existing homes. One of its largest revitalization efforts brought a Tops Supermarket to the neighborhood. It promotes PAC-TAC (Police and Citizens Together Against Crime), Neighborhood Watch Programs and landscape enhancements. In 2009, CONEA worked with the City's Forestry Department to install an avenue of new trees in the area. It also partners with six neighborhood block clubs: Reed Park, Henry Street, Evergreen Street, Edward Street, Vose Street and Mark Street Block Clubs.1
Thanks to CONEA's efforts, Upper Falls was named one of three neighborhoods targeted by the Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative in 2016.
