The Partnerships for Change Program is making available $250,000 in professional services and technical assistance grants through their sustainable communities program. The grants will be awarded to groups of communities that have agreed to work together for change in their shared communities.
Special attention is being made to assist those projects that address sustainability such as preservation of critical natural resources, energy conservation, community asset inventories and improved economic viability.
The Partnerships for Change Sustainable Communities Program was developed by the League, the Land Information Access Association, and the Michigan Townships Association with assistance from the Michigan Association of Planning and Michigan State University Extension.
