More Training Opportunities
Identifying and including a community’s full spectrum of voices is among the most challenging — and valuable — work community leaders do.
Blandin Foundation offers community-wide training on two topics important to rural Minnesota communities. Each program builds a community’s capacity to talk about and build locally-based strategies for change.
Graduates of Blandin’s community leadership programs (BCLP, BRCLP, LPEP, LEDC) may apply for these funds to assist with projects to plan for a vibrant future for their communities. Think feasibility studies, technical or consultant assistance, strategic planning and visioning work. (These grants were previously called Rural Quick Start grants.) Response in approximately 30 days.
