The Regional Capacity Building Initiative (RCBI) Request for Proposals is now open to network applications. RCBI is designed to enhance local networks comprised of cross-sector organizations who are committed to working collaboratively. RCBI will increase collective grassroots capacity to accomplish shared goals at the intersection of community and watershed health and enhance local networks’ ability to advance programs and policies to improve regions beyond the term of the initiative. This initiative will provide evaluation and training services, technical assistance, and grants to strengthen and diversify regional networks working together to advance a shared regional and community driven agenda that improves the quality of life in the region and protects and restores natural resources.
