About this grant
The Western Organization of Resource Councils Education Project is attempting to build permanent, multi-issue, membership-based community organizations throughout the northwest. Funding will enable the grantee to increase the capacity of grassroots leaders and professional community organizers in order to address economic issues of concern to low-income residents of the Rocky Mountain and Great Plains regions. The grantee will undertake a series of workshops, trainings, leadership schools, exchanges, and the production of training materials. This initiative will enhance the grantee’s work on issues including natural resources policy, corporate and community relations, and agricultural reforms to benefit small- and moderate-sized family farms. This grant provides renewal support for Western Organization of Resource Councils Education Project and its supported organization, the Western Organization of Resource Councils.
