Submit an idea to RSDP

Have a project idea?

Do you have an idea to improve sustainability in your community? We'd love to hear from you! Our statewide project application period takes place from January 1 to February 14 each year. Ideas can be submitted any time, but many funding decisions for the year are made following this statewide application period. 

Idea Brief

We hope you’re encouraged to share your idea! Start the conversation by reaching out to the Executive Director in your region, or by submitting an Idea Brief below. A regional Executive Director will follow-up with you soon.

Each region also determines its own funding priorities for the year. Learn more about the counties served and priorities identified by each region below.

We are here to help you with the process and want to make it as easy as possible for you to share your idea. If you have difficulty with the form, please let us help you.

Please note that this is a competitive process. RSDP regional boards make decisions based on available regional project dollars and are not able to support all project ideas submitted. Even in cases where a project is not supported by the RSDP regional board, we hope your idea will benefit from our early conversations and this application process.
