RE: Grant Proposal.
Dear Campus Sustainability Fund:
The Northwest Center for Livable Communities is providing you with this Letter of Intent (LOI) regarding a grant proposal for funding our organization in the current academic year 2017- 2018. We hope that this effort will be the beginning of a long and productive relationship between the Northwest Center for Livable Communities (NWCLC) and the Campus Sustainability Fund (CSF) here at the University of Washington.
As we discussed in our recent meeting on February 14, 2018, we are seeking funding to expand the NWCLC’s role at the UW. During the past 36 years the NWCLC has sought to create a viable platform to connect the UW community with current leaders in the built environment. The proposed NWCLC speakers’ bureau will highlight local, regional, national and international best practices in sustainable design, construction materials and methods, urban mobility, land use and place making. Currently, the NWCLC is unable to underwrite the cost of a speakers’ bureau which we believe will become financially self-sustaining in the near term. We will be requesting funding from the CSF to launch this exciting new program.
In addition, with funding in hand, the NWCLC will underwrite an annual student led project to be implemented on the UW Seattle campus. This project will be designed and built by students for students. We anticipate the first project to be designed and built on campus in Fall 2018.
