Grants of $10,000 to USA cities to encourage collaboration among community residents. Funding may be used for project coordination, coaching, and project-related expenses. The goal of the program is to provide start-up funding for resident-led groups in small cities looking to implement the Community Heart & Soul model. Grantees will be invited to join the Heart & Soul Community of Practice to network with other Heart & Soul communities across the country.
Community Heart & Soul is a resident-driven process that engages the entire population of a city in identifying what they love most about their community, what future they want for it, and how to achieve it.
Community Heart & Soul must be initiated within six months of grant approval. Implementation takes about 18 months to two years.
