Abstract: 

The Sustainable Communities Project is a program of the Central Minnesota Initiative Fund in cooperation with
the USDA Forest Service, helping communities, nonprofit groups and businesses within the 14-county CMIF
region establish sustainable development projects. Based in Little Falls, SCP assists in the development of
activities that promote economic vitality, environmental quality and social well-being.
Services include:
· Provide community leaders, local governments, etc. with information about what a sustainable community might look like and how they, as a community, can move toward that direction through personal meetings, speaking engagements, etc.
· Work with communities undergoing planning to identify relevant information and resources, encourage public participation and develop a decision-making process to guide the community toward sustainability.
· Work with industry associations or other interested organizations to identify and promote sustainable manufacturing and value-added strategies that strengthen local economies by encouraging rural business development.
Project staff are available, at no charge, to meet with community groups. Contact our office for additional information.
