Collaborative Success Stories- Several Narratives
Since 2009, the Center has been studying the following specific cases of collaboration. Each of these projects was selected as a finalist in the 2009 EfficientGovNow (EGN) program - a contest inviting local government officials to write and submit proposals for projects that involve two or more local governments working together to save money and/or improve government services. The finalists' proposals were then voted on by the public, with the winning projects receiving grant funding to either begin or continue their collaborative effort.
The Fund for Our Economic Future - the philanthropic organization which sponsored EGN - has asked the Center to track eight of the final projects. By studying these efforts, the Center seeks to assist other entities by documenting information and lessons learned growing from these cases of collaboration.
