Image for NEA Releases Funding Guidelines for Our Town Grants

Oct 11, 2012

Guidelines and application materials for Our Town, the National Endowment for the Arts' primary creative placemaking grants program, are now posted online. Pending availability of funding, grants will range from $25,000 to $200,000. The application deadline is January 14, 2013.

Among the project types supported through Our Town are arts engagement projects that support artistically excellent artistic production or practice as the focus of creative placemaking work. This includes:

  • Innovative programming that fosters interaction among community members, art organizations, and artists, or activates existing cultural and community assets.
  • Festivals and performances in spaces not normally used for such purposes.
  • Public art that improves public spaces and strategically reflects or shapes the physical and social character of a community.
