Collaborative funding efforts

Resolution number: 
13
June 1994
Whereas: 
  1. Under the current era of fiscal restraint and funding cutbacks, agencies are being encouraged to enter into collaborative efforts for service delivery;
  2. The criteria for establishing collaborative efforts has been only loosely developed;
  3. The attempt to forge effective, equitable collaborative efforts has met with little, if any, success;
  4. The funding allocated to conjoint projects is never adequate to allow organizations to engage in a process of development;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR:

  1. Bring to the attention of funders, particularly the federal government and specifically the funders participating in the Culturally Appropriate Social Services Conference in Montreal, June 5 - 7, the need to allocate sufficient funds for the development process of forging equitable collaborative efforts between mainstream and community-based organizations including, but not limited to, the criteria for equitable power-sharing;
  2. Call upon the mainstream organizations to join in the effort of making the development process a reality for forging meaningful, equitable collaborative efforts.
