February 14 is a day to celebrate relationships, and also just so happens to be the deadline to submit applications for the 2014–2015 Resilient Communities Project partnership! RCP serves as a matchmaker between a community’s projects and various departments and resources at the University of Minnesota.  What’s the result? A fruitful and collaborative relationship! We help facilitate significant progress and infuse energy into a community’s efforts toward sustainability and resilience. Just ask Minnetonka and North Saint Paul.

There are a number of promising eligible partners for our next collaboration, and we look forward to reviewing their proposals. Who will be the lucky community chosen for the next collaboration? Stay tuned—we will be announcing our partner community in March!

Carol Hejl is Program Assistant for the Resilient Communities Project and a student in the Master of Urban and Regional Planning Program at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota
