This past summer, I managed a grant round at CPB in the hopes of finding several online service projects that focused on community building and civic participation. In the end, we selected four projects to receive around $80,000 apiece to help assist their efforts. The four recipients of the CPB Civic Networking Grants include
- Davis Community Network
- The LINCT Coalition
- St. Louis Development Corporation
- TINCAN (The Inland Northwest Community Access Network)
Hampton Bays, NY and Chicago, IL
St. Louis, MO
The CivNet awards will be used for software and website development, public outreach, Internet literacy courses, and training activities. In all, we received 120 proposals from 35 states and the District of Columbia, so the competition was pretty stiff. Please visit the CivNet homepage for more info….
