2018-2019 CCNYPA Regional Consortia Mini-Grants for Community Engagement

CCNYPA is pleased to announce the availability of twelve mini-grants up to $1500 each to support regional efforts among at least two CCNYPA institutions to deepen community engagement either among institutions and/or with community partners. These funds are drawn from an internal grant and have been approved by CCNYPA’s Board.

Aligned with CCNYPA’s mission, mini-grants will focus on both building higher education’s capacity to deepen civic and community engagement and strengthen CCNYPA’s regional communities. These mini-grants will accomplish this through one of the following focus areas: 1) Professional development for campus leaders such as center directors, staff, and faculty. Topics may include faculty development for teaching civic learning, service-learning, community-based learning, and/or community-based research initiatives, enhancing promotion and tenure policies to value community engaged research, and other relevant community engaged higher education themes; 2) Issue-focused convening which highlights a community-identified need and gathers multiple stakeholders for synchronizing efforts to increase impact, such as food access, community gardens, refugee/immigrant integration, or other issues which draw on collective community efforts.

Mini-grant awards will be based on completed applications, compelling rationale for regional consortium, demonstration of building regional capacity to deepen community engagement, and applications which represent diversity within geographical regions and higher education sector type.

Application deadlines: August 31, 2018 or January 4, 2019. Approximately 6 mini-grants will occur each in the fall and the spring.
