Other Funding Opportunities


1.  Community Building and Engagement RFP

Funding to support community building and engagement was added by the Common Council in the 2015 City of Madison budget. The goal of the Community Building and Engagement fund is to increase community cohesion, resident engagement and promote resident leadership capacity and skills in neighborhoods with high concentrations of low and moderate income residents, and/or designated areas assigned to City Neighborhood Resource Teams.    Additionally, the intent is to build the capacity of local organizations to promote, support and sustain civic engagement by populations that are typically underrepresented in city governance and civic processes including people and populations of color and low to moderate income residents.

 

The City has $100,000 available for this RFP opportunity. Proposal requests should be for not less than $25,000 and not more than $100,000.  There may be the possibility of continuing funding for projects for additional years, however there is no current commitment for continued funding by the Common Council.

 

Applications are due on Friday, March 20, 2015 at 12:00 pm (noon).  Late applications will not be accepted.
