About Us

The New Orleans Citizen Participation Project (NOLA CPP) is a citizen driven initiative to create a formal system that involves people directly in the decisions they care about most. A Citizen Participation Program  is a partnership between people and their government that enables individuals to provide input on government decision making through organized Neighborhood Associations or Communities of Interest. For more information about the NOLA CPP, please contact Nick Kindel (see below).

The NOLA CPP is lead by New Orleanians who have volunteered countless hours to this initiative. These citizens have worked with Committee for a Better New Orleans (CBNO), the non-profit organization that has facilitated the work. CBNO is a multi-racial, multi-generational community organization, a catalyst and convener, working to bring all voices to the table to address systemic issues that will help to build a better quality of life for all New Orleanians. For more information on CBNO, please visit its website or contact Keith Twitchell (see below).

The NOLA CPP is not funded by City funds. All of funds have been provided by grants and donations. As a result, we would like to thank the following funders for their generous support: Greater New Orleans Foundation, blue moon fund, Rockefeller Foundation, Annie E. Casey Foundation, Surdna Foundation, Entergy Corporation, The Open Society Foundations, Case Foundation, JP Morgan Chase Foundation, and Hash House Harriers Red Dress Run.
