2016 Funding Opportunities Announced

In 2016 we continue to make investments aimed at the goals defined in our Plan for Impact: 2013-2018.  At the release of our five-year plan in 2013, we committed to measuring progress and evaluating contributions to our goals in order to adjust and enhance our approach for deeper impact. Our assessment of where efforts have taken us at this stage has informed decisions about our 2016 funding.  We are prioritizing both opportunities to complement the remarkable efforts underway as well as support projects in areas where there is room to do much more.
