The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven (“The Foundation”) is inviting proposals from qualified individuals or firms (a “Consultant”) to work with the Neighborhood Leadership Program (NLP) Facilitators and our Director of Community engagement to conduct an evaluation of the NLP.
The goals are as follows:
The Foundation was established in 1928. Its mission is to inspire, support, inform, listen to, and collaborate with the people and organizations of Greater New Haven to build an ever more connected, inclusive, equitable and philanthropic community. The Foundation is one of the oldest and largest community foundations in the country with total assets of approximately $870 million.
The Neighborhood Leadership Program is a networking, skill building and grant program for resident community leaders of New Haven, Hamden, East Haven, and West Haven. The program evolved over several decades from the Neighborhood Small Grants Program to the Neighborhood Leadership Grants Program to the current, Neighborhood Leadership Program. The current iteration of the program was initiated in 2008. Through this program we support self-identified community leaders in their efforts to build and sustain community while bringing them to the attention of the broader community. Although the facilitators conducted feedback interviews with alum 4 years into the current program configuration and participant evaluations are conducted during program participation every year, no external evaluation of the current program has been conducted to date.
