资金 Opportunity: Infusing 股本 into Built Environment for Better Health


这个融资机会旨在支持建筑环境的资本投资,例如游乐场, parks and outdoor spaces – across Colorado that allow children, youth and families to engage in physical activity more regularly. This funding opportunity prioritizes communities living on low income, communities of color and rural communities in Colorado.

有兴趣申请资助的机构可透过两种途径之一申请资助:规划补助金或已准备就绪的项目. 优秀的申请者将展示社区是如何——或将如何——以平等为中心参与的, 社区驱动的设计(ECCD)过程将他们聚集在一起,创造反映社区历史的户外空间, culture and legacy.

ECCD过程强调一个社区的文化资本,同时评估和解决需要发生什么来创造持久的变化. 要消除系统性压迫,就必须认识到,受不平等影响最大的人最有能力解决这些问题. Every community member is a valuable contributor to this process. 然而,ECCD过程要求任何社区中最年轻的成员都是创造者.

因此, 社区将被要求证明其ECCD过程涉及以下四个支柱:

  • 股本
  • Humility-Building
  • Integrating 历史 and Healing Practices
  • Addressing Power Dynamics
