When & Where
The Conservation Fund's Resourceful Communities Program.
Resourceful Communities is a grassroots network that implements the triple bottom line in economically-distressed, resource-rich communities by building capacity and a statewide movement that advocates for sustainable economic development, social justice, and environmental stewardship.
Our work is asset-based and partner-driven. We help communities build on their greatest strengths: people, land and tradition. We support partners through three primary strategies: capacity building, direct small grants, and facilitated awareness of, and access to, additional resources.
