Our Town Grant Applications

Applications for the National Endowment for the Arts' creative placemaking grant program, Our Town, are due August 5. The goal of the program is to fund efforts that lay the groundwork for arts, culture, and design to be included in strategies that strengthen communities.

Partnerships between local governments, nonprofits, and other community stakeholders are central to Our Town. Grants range from $25,000 to $150,000 for projects that incorporate into placemaking strategies activities such as artist residencies, arts festivals, performances, public art, cultural planning, design of cultural facilities, public space design, and more.
