There’s still time to submit a proposal! 

The University of Minnesota’s Resilient Communities Project (RCP) is currently accepting proposals from cities, counties, tribal governments, special districts, and regional government agencies or partnerships in Minnesota to be an RCP partner for the 2019–2020 academic year. Successful applicants will benefit from approximately 20,000 to 50,000 hours of work by University of Minnesota students and faculty, from a variety of disciplines, to provide research and technical assistance with projects that advance community resiliency. The partner must support the effort through dedicated staff time and a local financial contribution. Prior partners have included Minnetonka, North St. Paul, Rosemount, Carver County, Brooklyn Park, Ramsey, Scott County, and Ramsey County.

Proposals are due Friday, February 15, 2019, by 11:59 pm. The selection process is competitive. The selected partner community will be announced in March 2019 and partnership preparation begins in April 2019.
