Program & Location: Metro Community Placemaking Grants

Deadline: Noon on Monday, February 3, 2020

Details: Applications are now open for Metro’s 2020 cycle of Community Placemaking grants. The Community Placemaking program supports creative, community-driven projects that strengthen social fabric, foster connection to place and involve and benefit communities of color and other historically marginalized communities.

Up to $190,000 is available for the 2020 cycle, in grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000. No matching funds are required. The application opened on November 22, 2019 and will close on February 3, 2020 at noon.

The grant program supports projects that share the following objectives.

  • Placemaking: People’s connections to each other and to places they care about are strengthened.
  • Equity: People of color and members of historically marginalized communities have power and resources to influence their neighborhoods and communities.
  • Partnerships: People’s efforts are maximized because they work in partnership with each other and with Metro.
  • Leadership: People participate in projects and decisions that affect them.
