Grants of $5,000 to USA community-based nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for hosting small co-creative activities in their communities. Collaborative projects should focus on advancing community goals and meeting community needs. The program is intended to facilitate conversations that shape the community and social context, and catalyze positive dynamics.
While there are no geographic restrictions, the funding source does tend to prioritize markets it works with directly in the following places: Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Gulf Coast, Mid-Atlantic, New York, Northern California, Ohio, Pacific Northwest, Southeast, and Southern California.
Collaborative Actions are small-scale, co-creative activities focused on implementation.
These actions may include:
- Creative placemaking
- Asset mapping
- Temporary art installations
- Community events
Projects will be selected based on how well they:
- Advance long-term community goals or meet community needs
- Deploy creative and collaborative strategies
- Engage local voices and build community agency
- Demonstrate feasibility within the budget and timeline
Budgeted expenses may include materials, staff time, payment to consultants or other partners, food and supplies for events, equipment rental fees and other direct costs for the proposed activity. Funds for the involvement of other organizations or individuals may also be included in the budget. For example, the funds could be used to pay an artist to lead the project.
