The Community Planning Project is a two-year project funded by IRCC’s Service Delivery Improvement stream within the Settlement Program to explore the interest and need for a community-based funding model, and the development of a community-led plan for the Tri-Cities. This project uses a participatory community approach to support collaboration of organizations across multiple sectors and community members on a learning journey to examine, imagine, and co-create a community-based participatory funding model and plan that will address the service needs/areas in the Tri-Cities and better meet community-identified settlement priorities through a coordinated approach to funding and service delivery.
The Tri-Cities Local Immigration Partnership will manage and provide oversight for the project. SRDC is the research partner. Community members in the Tri-Cities who are interested and affected by funding for settlement services will be engaged in the process to develop the community plan.
