About this grant

The Center for Neighborhood Technology works with cities to provide research, tools and solutions to advance sustainable and equitable communities. Based in Chicago, the grantee has focused much of its work on water resource challenges in the Great Lakes region. With previous support from the Mott Foundation, the grantee has provided workshops and technical assistance on Great Lakes cities’ water infrastructure challenges, including in Flint and Chicago. The grantee has reached out nationally to share findings and seek additional solutions to advance policies and programs to enhance water affordability and environmental sustainability. With continued Mott support, the Center for Neighborhood Technology will design a program with community groups to provide technical assistance on sustainable water infrastructure for five Great Lakes cities and disseminate innovation strategy guides as resources for other Great Lakes cities.
