The Creative Community Grant program makes awards of up to $5000 to selfdefined artists (either individuals or businesses) that have creative solutions to local challenges. While we currently don’t have any open rounds, we hope to have more in the future.
Over a three year period, we held six rounds of funding. Each round addressed a different issue, identified by neighborhood surveys, focus groups, resident led community groups, and existing neighborhood plans. Like much of our creative placemaking and housing initiatives, most of the grants awarded each round took place in Covington’s Westside neighborhood. The exception is this latest round where we’re giving out 4 grants in 4 different neighborhoods and each one will address a different, neighborhood-identified issue. Download the application here. Check out a map of the four neighborhoods and points of interest referenced in the application here. Grant recipients for this round will be announced in August.
Even though we don’t currently have any Creative Community Grants open, we’d still love to sit with you and think through your ideas to see if there is a way to make them happen. You can also read through our funded projects to see the grants we funded in previous rounds and maybe get some inspiration!
