A Better Understanding of the Income System
As UWRV launches its Income Open Process for the upcoming funding cycle, it was critical to have a strong understanding of what the income system looked like, who the players were and where there were opportunities for collaboration. Having this knowledge will be critical in determining how time, energy and resources can be directed and maximized to achieve the desired community impact. Below are key resources from this project which will be shared and discussed at the agency stakeholder meeting.
