Partners + Proposals

The Action Lab is not accepting community partner proposals at this time. The submission period for Spring 2022 will open in September 2021. 

Hartford community partners are welcome to submit a brief project proposal. See examples of completed and current projects. Not sure about the exact wording? Contact us to discuss your ideas or request help in writing your proposal.

After review by the Action Lab, your proposal will publicly appear online (see further below), to help us match you with interested faculty fellows and students. Hartford partners are broadly defined to include neighborhood groups, non-profit organizations, government agencies, social entrepreneurs, and others, who seek to improve the city or its role in the metropolitan region.

Partners must be available to meet with the team at least once a month (either Tues, Wed, or Thurs afternoons, or Tues. or Weds. evenings) at our downtown campus, either remotely or in-person, as pandemic conditions allow.

We will contact you after the Hartford Resident Advisory Board meets and again after teams are formed.
