The Consensus Council in partnership with the Bush Foundation is excited to offer Community Innovation grants!
Over the past 30 years, the Consensus Council has worked to bring citizens and leaders together to build agreements on difficult issues, through including the right people, assuring a safe place and facilitating thoughtful and strategic conversations. We’ve heard from organizations throughout North Dakota that today’s changing community needs and complex challenges require new thinking and new approaches. However, the day-to-day pressures of work – operationally and financially – make it hard to step back and engage the community to think bigger and think differently to create new solutions to community problems. These grants are designed for organizations to do just that – to lead the process of creating a community innovation.
