The Powerhouse Arts District Neighborhood Association (PADNA) was established to promote the well-being and common good of residents in the Powerhouse Arts District and the surrounding downtown waterfront. We aim to foster communication among residents and the broader community, thereby enhancing the quality of life in Jersey City.


PADNA relies on unpaid volunteers who generously donate their time and effort to represent and advocate for our neighborhood's interests. As a volunteer-based organization, we operate without external funding, relying solely on donations from our community. These donations are essential to support PADNA's initiatives, including community events, neighborhood improvement projects, and advocacy efforts with city officials and government agencies. Your contributions help fund public forums, community outreach programs, and other activities aimed at enhancing our neighborhood's quality of life.
