Funding Process Study

The City of Madison Community Development Division (CDD) allocates more than $8.5 million annually  through purchase of service contracts to be used by recipients to address City goals and support efforts  to strengthen neighborhoods, address poverty and racial and social inequities, and improve the quality of life for city residents. 

The CDD is engaged in work to redesign and improve the way in which it plans for and carries out these activities and has selected, through an open RFP process, Forward Community Investments (FCI) to provide technical assistance.

CDD staff has been working with FCI to create a process that is transparent and integrates community participation at multiple levels throughout the project.  See Involvement Opportunities for details on how to contribute your ideas and opinions.
