Partners for Places, an initiative of the Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities, is a matching grant program that creates opportunities for cities and counties in the United States and Canada to improve communities by building partnerships between local government sustainability offices and place-based foundations. Through the program, national funders invest in local projects to promote a healthy environment, a strong economy, and well-being of all residents. For Round 14, grants will range between $25,000 and $75,000 for one-year projects, or $50,000 and $150,000 for two-year projects, with a 1:1 match required by one or more local foundations. Proposals should be for projects that local government sustainability leaders or water directors, and local, place-based funder(s) consider important to advancing sustainability goals in their communities. The application deadline is January 31, 2019. Visit the Funders’ Network website to download the Request for Proposals for Round 14.
