dc.description.abstractThis report describes a Community Investment Cycle grant-making program. The Community Investment Cycle (CIC) is a year long community organizing process that provides short, six-month grants to neighborhood residents for projects that connect families to other families, neighborhood resources and economic opportunities. C I C is based on the principle that residents have great ideas for strengthening family and neighborhood life. The program helps residents form leadership teams, set neighborhood goals, recruit Project Leaders and develop simple, measurable project plans. C I C is a lever to spark new energy and leadership in individuals and neighborhoods. In the project, a group of residents will form a community-wide leadership team known as Co-Investors to choose funding priorities, award grant dollars, and organize the community. Residents that apply for funding from the Co-investment team and carry out projects are called Project Leaders. Co-Investors will receive up to $15,000 to fund up to ten projects, each of which will be eligible to receive up to $1,500, for six months. The author assisted the Neighborhood Fund in developing and implementing a model of the Community Investment Cycle that would work well in the targeted community. (Author abstract)en_US
