Hometown Turnaround Aims to Revitalize Two Local Communities
Applications are now being accepted by the Initiative Foundation for the Hometown Turnaround program.
The Initiative Foundation in Little Falls has partnered with community development specialist Deb Brown to help two local communities grow and prosper. The prize package is valued at $5,000.
Deb Brown will visit the selected communities for four days, gathering all of the information on the town. At the end of her visit, she will leave the town with a plan of action to revitalize their community. Brown has already helped many communities throughout the Midwest.
The deadline to apply to the Hometown Turnaround Program is August 17th, and you can apply at https://www.ifound.org/news-events/xcel-energy-foundation-sponsors-community-visits/.
