The Placemaking Grant is a community-building initiative that will support quick-win, transformative projects throughout the city to create and enhance community vibrancy, safety and identity through:
Activation of leftover and/or underutilized spaces
Art and beautification efforts
Creation of community gathering spaces
This grant, which has a total pool of $150,000 in 2022, builds upon the opportunities presented in the City’s Placemaking Hub, which provides toolkits to inspire and guide placemaking efforts. These efforts allow neighborhoods, individuals and businesses to define the character and identity of their communities through community driven projects with the support of the City of Charlotte Urban Design Center staff. We are now accepting applications for placemaking grants. The deadline is March 4, 2022. Please see the Placemaking Grant Guide and application on the right.
