Help Make Northeast Ohio Government More Efficient

The Fund for Our Economic Future, a collaborative effort of philanthropies throughout Northeast Ohio, has launched a program to accelerate government collaboration and efficiency in the region.

The EfficientGovNow program will provide as much as $300,000 in funding to as many as three collaborative government projects from throughout Northeast Ohio. The Fund will select the round of finalists, and citizens will determine which projects get funding.

The program’s website www.efficientgovnow.org includes interactive features for both citizens and governments to encourage, suggest, submit and comment on proposals. Abstracts of proposals submitted by government will be posted April 15 for review and comment. Online voting will begin July 1.
