Synopsis Nonprofit agencies and their community teams are invited to apply to become part of a national initiative that will pilot new, community-driven projects that hold promise for creating healthy places where children and their families can succeed. Raising Places will partner with local leaders invested in childhood and community development to explore actionable, locally driven answers for the question, ‘What does it take to build healthier communities where all children and their families can thrive?’

The program will be a collaboration of the community and:

  • Conveners that will serve as trusted local guides for community-focused projects.
  • Design team members acting as a cross-sector team to create new programs, policies, and/or spaces that respond to specific community challenges.

Greater Good Studio will guide the overall process and collaborates with conveners to support their design team’s projects, and RWJF will provide guidance throughout the process. Each of the six selected conveners will receive a grant of $60,000 from RWJF to support their team’s work.
