District and National Councils are at the heart of ULI: they deliver the ULI mission at the local level.

Marilee Utter, Executive Vice President, ULI District/National Councils

District Councils deliver the ULI mission at the local level. They engage local members through developing various ULI priority programs, hosting educational forums, and convening events such as special initiative conferences keyed to the release of publications like Emerging Trends in Real Estate and the annual Infrastructure report. By conducting community outreach programs and providing industry expertise to community leaders, District Councils focus on opportunities to foster collaboration locally and build healthy, sustainable communities.





The ULI Foundation and the Urban Resilience Program are offering District Councils a grant opportunity to address resilience of local communities. This grant is specific to resilience projects related to climate change impacts, such as drought, sea-level rise, storm surge, increased storm-water management, and more. All District Councils are encouraged to apply. The deadline to apply is June 5, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. EDT.

See the Guidelines and the Application Form for more information.
