Outreach & Support
As part of their Love My Neighbor! program, Neighborhood Allies solicited technical assistance to help applicants with project grants, scoping and resource identification for potential projects, and identification of funding sources for their ideas. The overall project objective was to invest in the talent and creativity of residents, so they could plan and design meaningful community improvements.
Supporting the required technical assistance necessitated partnering with facilitators who were experienced in working within these diverse communities. E. Holding’s generated interest and participation at Love My Neighbor! workshops within Larimer and the Hill District. During each workshop, our team explained the requirements and funding of the grant and provided technical assistance to applicants. E. Holdings, Inc. also provided assistance with interview preparation, obtaining a Fiscal Sponsor, follow-up sessions/questions, and held mock interviews to prepare applicants for their interviews.
