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 $165,000 in 2020, builds upon the opportunities presented in the City’s Placemaking Hub, which provides toolkits to inspire and guide placemaking efforts. This year, we offered two types of grants: Placemaking Project Grants and Technical Assistance Grants. Please continue to visit this website for updates on our next round of grants. In the meantime, please click on the Placemaking Grant Guide on the right to learn more about the requirements and details of the Placemaking Grants.
