Funding Process Study

The City of Madison's Community Development Division (CDD) has a long-standing commitment to addressing community development challenges through a competitive funding process. In 2013, the Mayor and Common Council appropriated funds to analyze these processes and make recommendations to help improve them. A major goal of this initiative was to find ways to make sure that public dollars are used effectively to achieve the City's stated goals and that this happen with the benefit of input from residents and stakeholders. Forward Community Investments (FCI) was selected to conduct this analysis.

FCI's final report on the Community Development Division Funding Process is now available. Click on the following links to gain access to the report and its appendices.
