It’s the product of a first-of-its-kind partnership among multiple allies: the National League of Cities, U.S. Conference of Mayors, Urban Sustainability Directors Network, the African American Mayors Association, and Results for America, as well as Bloomberg Philanthropies and other foundations including the Emerson Collective, Ford Foundation, and the Kresge Foundation.
The Hub will connect America’s local leaders to experts who can bring clarity and direction to what can be a dizzying application process. Through webinars and a range of robust technical assistance packages, Hub experts will help showcase innovations and provide communities with the cutting-edge knowledge they need to compete for federal funds.
The Hub will also encourage communities to continue to think big and take on tough challenges. For instance, visionary local leaders see the opportunity to leverage these dollars around climate change and racial wealth equity, and the Hub will support them in advancing ambitious projects that tackle those priorities.
