The Grassroots Activist Support Team, led by Kirstin Dohrer, works to help national issue teams set and reach measurable goals, engage new people, and build new leaders. The Support Team reviews grant proposals and administers project funds, as well as coaching teams. Other core team members are Marilyn Wall, Les Barry, Fran Caffee, Norm Sharp, and the the Activist Network Coordinating Pair — Clayton Daughenbaugh and Bob Bingaman.

Team News & Views
Grassroots Network seeks grant proposals of to $12,000 to Club entities working to engage new people, build new leaders, and win conservation victories. (However, the more you ask for, the more scrutiny your budget will receive.) The expectation is that grant funds will be spent within 1 year of approval, though teams can ask for extensions. Please also note expectations for all charged teams and funded projects. Failure to comply with these may impact future opportunities for funding.
