-> FELLOWSHIP – PLACES FELLOWSHIP, FUNDERS’ NETWORK FOR SMART GROWTH AND LIVABLE COMMUNITIES, VARIOUS LOCATIONS

Work done in vulnerable and distressed communities often falls short of intended outcomes or doesn't translate into lasting impact. Because the needs and perspectives of low-income communities, often comprised of people of color, have been systematically disregarded in decisionmaking about growth and development, the Funders' Network developed the PLACES Fellowship. The PLACES Fellowship (Professionals Learning About Community, Equity & Smart Growth) develops tools and provides resources to help funders understand and eliminate the disproportionate impact of these decisions. We are now accepting applications for the sixth class of PLACES Fellows.
