LCF Grants Funds for Four Community Builders

LCF continued to maximize the impact of its discretionary grant-making in 2021 by committing to Prosper Lincoln’s community agenda. In support of the Strong Neighborhoods focus area, LCF approved funding to the Lincoln Community Learning Centers (CLC) for a community builder in each quadrant of the city as well as mini grants to facilitate resident community engagement in neighborhoods.

Using an Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) framework, these Community Builders work with CLC schools, families, and neighborhoods to build relationships, make connections, and elevate community/resident voices. Lincoln Community Learning Centers strive to promote successful students, thriving families, and strong neighborhoods.

The ABCD framework taps into the assets of residents and uses existing community strengths to build stronger neighborhoods for the future. Do not be surprised to see your Community Builders attending Neighborhood Association meetings, working with businesses and local community organizations to plan and execute neighborhood events, or meeting and connecting with people who live and work in our neighborhoods at your local coffee shops.
