Call for Proposals
Integrating Community Indicators and Performance Measures
Indicators Consortium (CIC), as part of a grant from the
Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, is seeking proposals to write
"Real Stories" of communities, organizations, and/or
jurisdictions that have tried, successfully and not so successfully, to
integrate community indicators and organizational performance measures.
The Real Stories project is intended to provide real life examples
of the advantages and challenges to both community indicator and
organizational performance measurement projects as a result of
integrating or linking these two types of efforts. The published Real
Stories, from 5-20 pages in length, will be used to advance the
knowledge of community indicators-organizational performance measures
integration and for training and other outreach material to community
leaders as a way to improve or inform decision-making and create
measurable, positive change in communities.
We are looking for proposals from individuals and groups who are directly
involved in these efforts as well as individuals and organizations that
work with community indicator and performance measurement projects. A
stipend of $2,000 will be awarded for each Real Stories
published.Three-to-five Real Stories will be selected for
publication in 2010.
The deadline for submitting proposals for the 2010 Call for Real
Stories is June 22, 2010. Notification of selected proposals and
guidelines for development will be sent on July 15th. The deadline for
the written first draft is September 15, 2010.
