Get involved in planning for East Phillips Parks and Open Spaces

Apply to become a Community Collaborator and help create a vision for Cedar Avenue Field Park and East Phillips Park. The MPRB’s Community Collaborator initiative is a paid opportunity for individuals and groups within the East Phillips community to host conversations and engage with residents about parks and recreation.

The work of Community Collaborators will inform the design and priorities for the East Phillips Open Spaces Plan in 2024.

Proposals to work as a Community Collaborator will be competitive, with funding paid to those whose proposals are selected. They should involve creative, innovative ways to engage different communities through digital platforms, in person, or both.

Examples of Community Collaborations could include but are not limited to:

  • Virtual coffee hour with community members
  • Story campaign with video interviews
  • Community open house
  • Focus group or community conversation

Fill out or download and print a Community Collaborator application. Proposals are due on Wednesday, April 17. Send completed applications to or

The Cultural Wellness Center and Pohlad Family Foundation Call for Nominations: Black Legacy Fellowship

The Cultural Wellness Center (CWC) and Pohlad Family Foundation invite community members to nominate Black organizers and activists for the Black Legacy Fellowship 2024-2025 cohort. Selected fellows will each receive $55,000 in unrestricted funds to support their well-being and renewal. Over the course of the 12-month fellowship, participants engage in a self-paced program that prioritizes well-being and renewal so they can continue their work toward racial justice. Additionally, each fellow has access to a Community Building Fund and can grant up to $15,000 to nonprofit organizations dedicated to the racial justice movement in the Twin Cities.

To be eligible potential fellows must be:

  • an American-born descendant of enslaved Africans;
  • at least 18 years old at the time of the application deadline;
  • experienced in racial justice work in the Twin Cities;
  • reside in the seven-county Twin Cities metro area; and
