For new projects: Submit a Concept Paper by Thursday, April 14, 2022. We welcome proposals from any interested party, regardless of whether you currently receive CSB or CoC funding. Before beginning work on a Concept Paper, please reach out to us so we can consult on the feasibility of the project, given the number of projects already in the planning stage and the system’s needs.
