COMMUNITY PLACEMAKING GRANTS
2020 grant cycle
The Community Placemaking program helps people tackle community challenges or opportunities through creative, arts-based, equity-focused projects. Grants support projects that foster connection to place, strengthen social fabric and involve and benefit communities of color and other historically marginalized communities. Thank you for taking the time to apply. Metro staff and the Community Placemaking advisory group look forward to reviewing your application.

Application review process
Applications will be reviewed by a community-based advisory group with expertise in social justice, arts and culture programming, community development and urban planning. They will use your application as the primary basis for their recommendation, but review may include requests for clarification from you. Make sure your proposed project is clear, compelling and sufficiently defined so they can understand how well it meets the program's objectives. The advisory group will select applications to recommend to Metro’s Chief Operating Officer and Metro Council for funding. Applicants will be notified of grant awards in April 2020.
