    UNSAAC Application (2018-2020)
    The University Neighborhood Service Area Agree­ment (UNSAAC) was established to address the unique impact Syracuse University has on surrounding neighborhoods by enhancing governmental services and maintaining their health, safety, and welfare through police and fire protection, preservation and improvement of housing, community support, and park and public space improvements. The City of Syracuse and Syracuse University renewed the Service Agreement in 2016 for a period of five years, allocating a total of $2.5 million to be used in alleviating the University’s impact on surrounding neighborhoods over that time period. With the renewed agreement, the UNSAAC borders have been expanded to include the Outer Comstock neighborhood, and the portion of the Southside neighborhood bordering the University. Applications are due May 18 by 4PM.
