EfficientGov is a system of local governments that meets the needs of citizens in a way that is cost-effective and cooperative.
EfficientGovNow is what the 16-county region of Northeast Ohio needs to compete in the global economy.
The EfficientGovNow program, presented by the Fund for Our Economic Future as part of the ANEO Choice Awards, aims to accelerate government collaboration and efficiency by providing as much as $300,000 in funding to as many as three collaborative government projects from throughout Northeast Ohio. The Fund will select the round of finalists and the citizens will determine which projects get funding.
In March 2009, the EfficientGovNow program issued requests for proposals to local governmental entities throughout Northeast Ohio. By the April 15th deadline, the program received 65 abstracts from partnerships across Northeast Ohio seeking to accelerate government collaboration and efficiency. We are thrilled by the response from these local government officials and applaud all their efforts!
After review of these abstracts, we found 44 to have met the minimum qualifications. These applicants will be asked to submit full proposals by May 31st, and finalists will be announced July 1. Throughout the month of July, the residents of Northeast Ohio will vote to determine which projects receive funding. Go to the website http://efficientgovnow.org/ to view abstracts of the 44 proposals.
Partners in the program include:
Local government officials and citizens will both play prominent roles in the EfficientGovNow program.
