[GRANT/FUNDING] Funding for cities Register by 9/23/13
What’s On Your Mind?: 

To enable 100 cities to better address the increasing shocks and stresses of the 21st century, The Rockefeller Foundation has launched the 100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge. One hundred cities from across the globe will be selected to receive technical support and resources for developing and implementing plans for urban resilience.

Complete the eligibility registration by September 23, 2013, by 23:59:59 GMT.
Complete the application form and submit or send it before the deadline of October 14, 2013, by 23:59:59 GMT.

If selected, the applicant must agree to work with The Rockefeller Foundation's partners to establish the suite of financial and technical assistance support to develop and implement the resilience plan, become an integrated member of the 100 Resilient Cities Network, and create or expand the role of a Chief Resilience Officer within the municipal government.

Challenge applicants may include municipal governments or major institutions (e.g., a nonprofit organization, university, chamber of commerce, or research center) that have a predominant affiliation/association with the city and demonstrate collaborative partnership with a municipal government. Strong preference will be given to municipal government applicants, unless circumstances do not allow for a city to represent itself. All applicants will be required to submit a letter of support from the senior-most representative of their city’s government, whether elected or appointed.

For the purposes of this challenge, a city will be defined by a population with over 50,000 inhabitants with a municipal government, or other elected or appointed chief executive office uniquely assigned to govern that population.
