We strive to be accessible to and knowledgeable about the communities we seek to support.

One way we do this is by visiting towns and cities across our region. We invite interested residents from these communities to sign up for Office Hours and meet face to face with our staff. These meetings give us a chance to connect with people who want to learn more about our grant programs, and they help us to better understand the challenges and opportunities that exist across our region.
