In order to continue to build the field of practice of community-driven planning and evolve tools, models, and approaches, we need more on-the-ground examples and stories from across the country.
To help meet this need, the National Association of Climate Resilience Planners (NACRP) is launching a Community-Driven Planning Fund in Spring 2024 which will support community-driven planning processes that are governed by community-driven planners and facilitators. Each quarter, NACRP members will be able to submit proposals for funding for up to $25,000 in order to resource communities and/or facilitators accountable to frontline communities to launch, continue, or complete a community-driven planning process.
People’s Climate Innovation Center (CI) will coordinate and administer the Fund and NACRP members, functioning as Advisors, will govern the Fund grantee selection process.
Our vision is that the Fund will seed and raise visibility of emergent efforts, contribute to the dissemination of community-led “people plans,” facilitative leadership, and community power-building
The NACRP Fund application will launch March 15, 2024 with a quarterly rolling basis. Approximately 2-3 proposals will be funded per quarter.
