Partners for Places


Partners for Places, a collaborative effort of the Funders’ Network and the Urban Sustainability Directors Network, is a successful matching grant program that improves U.S. and Canadian communities by building partnerships between local government sustainability leaders and place—based foundations. National funders invest in local projects developed through these partnerships to promote a healthy environment, a strong economy and well—being for all residents. Past awards have supported energy efficiency challenges, urban agriculture projects, efforts to increase active transportation and food system improvements. The anticipated release date for the next RFP is June 2016. Visit the Funders’ Network website for more information and to view its project Idea Bank.
