National Endowment for the Arts “Our Town” Grant

DATE December 3, 2012LEAVE A COMMENT

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) works to improve the lives of America’s citizens in many ways. Communities across the nation are leveraging the arts and engaging design to make their communities more livable with enhanced quality of life, increased creative activity, a distinct sense of place, and vibrant local economies that together capitalize on their existing assets. Through the Our Town Grant, the NEA will provide a limited number of grants, ranging from $25,000 to $200,000, for creative placemaking projects that contribute toward the livability of communities and help transform them into lively, beautiful, and sustainable places with the arts at their core. Our Town will invest in creative and innovative projects in which communities, together with their arts and design organizations and artists, seek to improve their quality of life, encourage greater creative activity, foster stronger community identity and a sense of place, and revitalize economic development.

The deadline to submit applications is February 1, 2013. For more information on this opportunity, visit:
