2016 PDII Request for Proposals

Learn more about the Public Design Impact Initiative.

Announcing the launch of the 2016 Public Design Impact Initiative Request for Proposals.

You can now submit your Project Proposals for [bc]'s PDII program! 

Are you a nonprofit or community group in need of design? Would architecture, planning, landscape architecture, or design expertise help you with a project you've had in mind but not the resources to move forward? Read through the Request for Proposals: English | Español and submit your project idea!

In 2016, as a part of a collaborative effort to extend equity in design to rural colonia areas in the Rio Grande Valley, we will pick two projects to match with local design professionals. 

**The deadline for submitting a proposal has passed. Please contact Elaine Morales (RGV) at 956.443.2211 and elaine@bcworkshop.org; or Elizabeth Jones (Dallas) at 214.252.2900 and elizabeth@bcworkshop.org with any questions.**

All RGV-based community and nonprofit groups (including nonprofit organizations, neighborhood associations, school PTA groups, etc.) are invited to submit Project Proposals. Applicants must be made up of a group of three or more individuals and should be both located within the RGV area. Proposed projects must also be located in the RGV and address issues related to colonias.

Proposals are welcome from all not-for-profit groups, from large and established nonprofit organizations to small/less formal community groups, regardless of the scale or scope of work.

Questions & comments related to the Public Design Impact Initiative should be directed to Elaine Morales, at elaine@bcworkshop.org or 956.443.2211
