Each month we share information about additional funding opportunities that may be relevant to your needs. Our highlighted offering from this month is from The University of Georgia Archway Partnership.
University of Georgia Archway Partnership
Type: Certification and Technical Assistance
The Connected Resilient Communities designation, facilitated by the UGA Archway Partnership, will help communities tap into the resources and expertise at the University of Georgia to address local challenges and become more attractive to economic development.
Selected counties and municipalities will develop a resiliency plan by engaging community residents, analyzing local data, and completing three projects on a scorecard with 10 categories and more than 70 programs in which UGA faculty and students have expertise. Please review the FAQ page for more detailed information.
Communities will be recognized at the completion of each project. Upon completion of all three projects, the community will receive the CRC designation.
An Archway Partnership faculty member will help communities connect with other UGA faculty and students. Communities should expect to spend four to six months on each project or 12 to 18 months to complete the CRC designation.
