 Designing a Local Funding Process

In order to assist Regional Committees as they design and implement a local funding process, BoS staff have assembled some general resources about designing effective competitions. While these resources are written for foundations to use, many of the same strategies may be employed by communities to help create a local ESG funding competition.
