When you support the Initiative Foundation's Community Development programs, you're helping us engage local leaders and citizens in planning for the future. We believe that courageous leadership, positive community dialog and civic engagement are the keys to a thriving community. Our four pronged approach of providing training, technical assistance, resource referral and grants is the key to helping communities and local citizens identify what they need to build a brighter future for their community.
Our Community Development focus areas include:
- Innovative Fund Grants
- Thriving Communities Initiative (TCI)
- Aquatic Invasive Species
- Specialty workshops, such as "Paths to Civic Engagement"
- Disaster preparedness, response and recovery.
