Grants generally starting at $50,000 to USA and territories non-profits, for-profits, government entities, and individual artists/designers seeking funds for creative placemaking projects that involve cross-sector partners committed to strengthening their communities. Applicants must register by October 31st and submit an LOI by November 3rd.
ArtPlace America sees its role as providing support for projects that lead through the arts/artists, integrate with a community’s economic development and revitalization strategies, and have the potential to attract additional support.
This grants program supports projects across the United States and its territories. However, several of ArtPlace’s foundation partners have deep commitments to their local and regional communities and have provided funding specifically to ensure grants are made: in communities of all sizes in Alaska, California, and Minnesota; for rural communities throughout Arizona, Iowa, the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, and Wisconsin; and for the cities of Akron, Ohio; Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville, Massachusetts; Charlotte, North Carolina; Detroit, Michigan; Macon, Georgia; Miami, Florida; Greater Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; San Jose, California; and St. Paul, Minnesota. Several funders are also interested in ensuring the participation and representation of folk and traditional arts, Native American arts, and the performing arts.
Approximately 50% of the $10 million to be disbursed in 2015 is restricted to the above communities and/or artistic disciplines. In an effort to support the broad spectrum of creative placemaking practices across the United States, ArtPlace is particularly interested in projects from states in which it has not yet granted, including: Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, and Wyoming.
