The goal is to bring people together for open discussions about issues affecting where they live.

“We’re hoping that these conversations are going to be about what’s going on in the communities. What are their concerns? What are their challenges? What would they like their community to look like?” Ziegler said.

Organizations wishing to apply can do so before Jan. 15, and must be a registered charity to be eligible.
