Here’s an opportunity to use community forestry best management practices as a way to reduce disaster impacts and mitigate climate change. To build resilience!
The National League of Cities 2021 Leadership in Community Resilience program is now accepting proposals from cities seeking additional funding for resilience-related projects. Each city selected for the 2021 cohort will receive $10,000 in financial support, and customized support from both NLC and the Resilient Cities Network (formerly 100RC). Apply today! The deadline for applications is December 23th, 2020. The announcement says, “We know how cumbersome and time consuming applications and proposal writing can be, so we purposely designed this one to be short and straightforward.”
- Cities and towns with a population of 5,000 or more are encouraged to apply.
- Lead applicant must be a municipal government, represented by a department head, other city staff, or elected official (mayor, council member, commissioner, etc.).
- Local nonprofits and community-based organizations may apply in partnership with a city.
