The Funders Network recently launched a new interactive Partners for Places Grants Map as well as a robust reboot of the Partners for Places Idea Bank featuring a searchable database of completed projects.

Grants Map

Visit the Partners for Places homepage on the TFN website to view interactive Grants Maps for both U.S. and Canadian projects that have been supported by the matching grants program. If you hover over each pinpoint on the map, you’ll see every Partners for Places project located in that community or region. Projects on the map are color-coded to indicate which category of Partners for Places grant support they received: gray for general grants, green for green stormwater infrastructure grants, and orange for projects supported by our Equity Pilot Initiative.

Idea Bank

Each completed project on the map includes a link that will take you to that project’s entry on the Partners for Places Idea Bank. (You can also access the Idea Bank directly via the pulldown menu at the top of the page, or via resource links embedded on the Partners for Places homepage.)

More than 100 completed Partners for Places projects are featured in the Idea Bank, including a description of the project, matching funders, lessons learned and additional resources. (See image below.) Adding to the functionality: The Idea Bank allows you to filter searches by focus area. Just click on the tags such as “Climate and Energy” or “Equity and Empowerment” to pull up all the projects tagged with those key areas.

Those of you who have been engaged with Partners for Places for some time may recall an earlier iteration of the Idea Bank created several years ago. This rebooted version incorporates interactive and searchable functionalities that allow for a deeper and more comprehensive way to explore grantee projects and appreciate the impact these grants have had over the past decade.

We hope you’ll take a moment to visit TFN’s new website to learn more about these new features: the Grants Map on the Partners for Places homepage as well as the Partners for Places Idea Bank.

If you have any questions or feedback about the Grants Map and Idea Bank, please reach out to TFN Director of Communications Tere Figueras Negrete at
