Norton County has been participating in Strategic Doing since 2015 in the form of an annual community convening - called "Envision Norton" - which creates an atmosphere for people from all backgrounds and ages to come together and brainstorm what they would like to see happen in the county. Groups are formed and they work through the Strategic Doing process to accomplish their intended goals.
Over the last four years, $881,493 has been awarded in grants from NCCF to fund Strategic Doing projects. The pie chart off to the side shows the breakdown of the total grant dollars given to each identified category.
