Collective Impact Lincoln

An intensive, multi-year partnership bringing vitality to Lincoln neighborhoods.


Collective Impact Lincoln creates lasting and meaningful resident-led investment and positive change in six of Lincoln’s core neighborhoods. Through canvassing, community events, and our Community Builder Workshops, neighbors are examining their communities’ natural strengths and are taking up new ways to improve.

CIL is a partnership between Civic Nebraska, Nebraska Appleseed and the South of Downtown Community Development Organization. Launched in 2017, Collective Impact Lincoln focuses on six Lincoln neighborhoods: Belmont, Clinton, Everett, Hartley, Near South and University Place.
