OPPORTUNITY: Regional Partnerships now inviting proposals for community projects

From U of M Extension…

Greater Minnesota residents with an idea to strengthen their community can now apply for partnership support from the University of Minnesota Extension Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships (RSDP). RSDP supports local innovation by connecting community ideas to University of Minnesota resources. Community members work on diverse project teams that research, design and plan local sustainability projects with University students, faculty and staff. RSDP seeks ideas from diverse populations and those who have not previously partnered with the University. Project ideas are invited now through February 14. Award decisions will be made by RSDP’s five regional boards this spring.
The Central RSDP serves Becker, Benton, Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Otter Tail, Stearns, Todd and Wadena counties and the White Earth Nation, Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe and Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe sovereign Native nations. Learn more and share your idea at z.umn.edu/RSDPIdeaBrief.
