Request for Proposals: Community Asset Scan


First Review of Proposals: July 6, 2022

The Appalachia Funders Network (AFN) seeks to improve understanding of the funding and investment gaps and existing community assets that correlate with levels of socio-economic wellbeing.

We are undertaking this work in order to identify cross-sector opportunities for coordinated foundation funding and/or capital investing that will promote a pipeline of scalable or replicable projects. AFN envisions that this analysis will illuminate high opportunity areas in the region and inform a better understanding of the interconnected barriers that create low levels of wellbeing.

We see great value in blending across domains that impact wellbeing and consider the effects of community assets, including those held by residents and by funders and investors of all types.

Our region of focus is those Appalachian Regional Commission-designated counties within West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky, and North Carolina. See 

Phase One: August through December 2022 ($135,000)

Phase Two: January through June 2023 ($20,000)
