The Intertwine Alliance

The Intertwine Alliance is a coalition of private firms, public agencies and nonprofit organizations working together to tap new sources of funding, better leverage existing investments, and more fully engage residents with the outdoors and nature.  The Intertwine Alliance uses a collective impact approach to its work.  Collective impact is the commitment of a coalition of organizations from different sectors to a common agenda for addressing a complex social or environmental challenge. 

CPM provided technical expertise to TIA and participates weekly on strategies especially related to regional funding, metrics and stakeholder participation.  Janet was a key staff at Metro during the incubation of the idea of the Alliance, and continued to support the Alliance as it has evolved over the past years.
