Community Placemaking Grant Application Open Aug. 5 – Oct. 7

Deadline October 07, 2022

Metro is accepting applications Aug. 5 through Oct. 7 at noon. Community Placemaking grants support arts and culture based, community-led, equity-centered efforts that strengthen people’s connections to each other and places they care about. Up to $200,000 in grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 will be awarded for the 2023 cycle. No matching funds are required.

Strong proposals are grounded in racial equity and address a critical community challenge or opportunity. Get started by reading the application handbook and looking over past recipients to understand the range of efforts supported. Staff is available to help you think through your proposal and get ready to submit a strong application. Learn more and ask questions at an upcoming virtual info session: Aug. 17, 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. — Aug. 18, noon to 1 p.m. – Sept. 7, noon to 1 p.m. Zoom links are available on the program webpage.
