The quality of life we enjoy in Central Minnesota--the diversity of the economy, the breadth of people, our easy access to the outdoors and the richness of our communities--is a regional asset. For more than two decades, the Initiative Foundation has taken a four-pronged approach in its efforts to help our cities, towns and tribal nations maximize their presence.
- Through our technical assistance offerings, we are able to coach civic leaders and help them guide their communities to a better place.
- Through our training programs, we come alongside regional leaders and help them achieve deep community engagement in the decisions that affect people's lives.
- Through resource referrals, we help to connect local leaders with organizations and experts to advance community improvement ideas.
- And through our grants programs, we provide the early financial resources to move good ideas into action.
Additional resources are routinely published in our monthly newsletter. Sign up today, and we'll deliver quality updates on upcoming workshops, trainings and funding opportunities directly to your inbox.
