The Creative Community Grant program ran for three years and was a program that made awards of up to $5,000 to self-defined artists (either individuals or businesses) that had creative solutions to local challenges.
Every round of this grant addressed a different issue, identified by neighborhood surveys, focus groups, resident led community groups, and existing neighborhood plans. Examples of topics: Inclusion, economic development, families, safety, health, and more. Descriptions of previously funded projects
Goats and a park swing to promote safety. Murals and a time capsule to celebrate a bicentennial birthday. A mosaic mural and Braille printer to encourage inclusion. These are examples of some of our projects. Watch a video to learn more.
