“Creative placemaking projects strategically link communities and local governments with artists, designers, and arts organizations to improve quality of life, create a sense of place, and revitalize local economies.”
The National Endowment for the Arts offers matching grants to arts organizations, nonprofits, and local governments for creative placemaking projects. Funding is available for engagement, design, and planning phases; construction and operating costs are not eligible for funding. The application period is typically open in late summer/early fall.
Funding amounts: $25,000 to $200,000
