Website Construction (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, or Weebly . A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

Our website at is currently hosted on Drupal, and we are looking to transition to a user-friendly platform that CCLR staff will be able to easily learn and utilize. The Communications Coordinator will be the main point of contact.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a domain name and a website hosted by Drupal, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a dedicated staff member for the project, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to spend more time on outreach events, grant review, and affecting change in the land reuse sector.

We fulfill our mission with only 5 staff members, and are in need of someone with the technical expertise to assist with transitioning our website to a new platform. This project will go a long way towards transforming our communications - which is crucial to the long-term health of the organization.
