Madison Plan submitted, followed by $50K award!

 

Last February, the City of Madison was one of seven cities awarded a grant to develop a plan to connect children to nature. A community-engaged planning process then ensued, identifying ideas and priorities for the plan.

As a result, Madison and six other cities (Austin, Providence, San Francisco, St. Paul, Louisville, and Grand Rapids) will each receive a $50,000 grant to implement year-one activities. Next steps include hiring a coordinator for implementation, setting uIMG_6477p our process for our initial focus on boosting access to nature, and working with partners to move toward building on existing efforts. Stay tuned for more details!
