Summer Smart History
In 2016 Climate Smart Missoula received a Bloomberg Award for Partners for Places - a project of the Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities. Thank you Bloomberg Philanthropies! and Funders' Network. This grant was a partnership with the City of Missoula and the Missoula Community Foundation, and was matched by numerous community partners. Years 1 and 2 of Summer Smart catalyzed new partnerships for both short-term, tangible actions and long-term planning and network building, all to help Missoulians be physically and mentally healthy and resilient amidst changing summer conditions. We're growing this effort and seek continued partner involvement and support.
