The purpose of this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) is to solicit services to evaluate, and train regional networks and develop a community of practice to increase network sustainability in partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Funders Network (CBFN) as part of the Capacity Building Initiative. The work to be supported will advance outcomes from the Chesapeake Bay Agreement. The Funding is supplied by the Chesapeake Bay Trust and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Chesapeake Bay Program through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.

The Capacity Building Initiative is designed to a) increase the collective and individual grassroots capacity to accomplish regional goals at the intersection of community and environment and b) establish durable, powerful, and coordinated efforts to advance programs and policies to improve regions and communities beyond the term of the initiative.

This combination of goals involves multiple organizations working on a cross section of issues working together. Technical assistance, training, and grants will be provided to strengthen and diversify regional collaborations 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.

Deadline for proposals is Monday, October 25, 2021 at 4:00 PM EST.
