The Nature in Neighborhoods capital grants program is recruiting community members to create a committee to guide an exciting new pilot project!
The capital grants pilot will use an innovative funding approach called participatory budgeting that gives community members a direct voice in choosing which projects to recommend for funding in their communities. Members of the design and review committee will help design the program and ultimately recommend up to $4 million in grant funding.
Metro is recruiting seven to 11 community members who reflect the racial, ethnic and economic diversity of the region to join this committee and help design the pilot program. Stipends will be provided for participation and additional access services are available upon request. The application is here and the deadline to apply is Nov. 19!
Join Metro and Participatory Budgeting Oregon (PBO) staff for an info session to learn more about participatory budgeting, the capital grants program and the role of the committee. If you need interpretation, closed captioning, or any other accessibility services please let us know when you RSVP or email [email protected].
