I thought this group would a good place to ask about the funding of civic-focused efforts.
I spent 10 years in the public sector doing focused work for different causes and groups.
During my experience, I discovered many opportunities to break down silos that would yield better outcomes for public agencies and citizens alike. I sought to do public-focused work, but on more independent terms and have found it challenging, to say the least.
I’m wondering: Where does funding exist for cross-cutting civic work? Who are advocates and leaders in the space that would be interested in new tools and processes for citizens? Who might be interested in collaborating to explore some ideas and approaches?
