GLRPPR Sector Resource: Spotlight on Seattle, Washington: Community Partnerships Work to Extend Program Reach

Title:
Spotlight on Seattle, Washington: Community Partnerships Work to Extend Program Reach

Abstract:
Seattle's Community Power Works (CPW) program has engaged a vast network of partners to build on existing capacity and knowledge, extending the reach of its program in a short period of time. By evaluating potential partnerships and identifying strategic opportunities to augment and enhance local ideas and programs, CPW is able to leverage its BetterBuildings seed funding to serve all building sectors within a diverse area in the city of Seattle. Simultaneously, CPW is set to achieve significant energy, climate, and economic development goals with its 40 partners--setting the city up for program sustainability.
