The John Rex Endowment is pleased to renew the Capacity Building Initiative Request for Proposals. Three types of support are available through the Capacity Building Initiative (CBI). Organizational Assessment grants allow organizations to undergo an assessment of current capacities. Capacity Building grants provide funding for organizations to implement strategies identified through an assessment process for the purpose of increasing their effectiveness and sustainability. The third type of support is for Strategic Restructuring assessment/planning grants. These grants will support two or more organizations assessing the feasibility of and implementation needs for alliances or integrations, such as consolidated administrative functions, shared staff positions, or mergers. Notification of intent to apply or letters of intent must be e-mailed to Kate Shirah at firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Tuesday, October 11, 2011.
