Through this focus area the Foundation will support arts and community development organizations that advance innovative approaches to community development that lead to inclusionary practices and policies, and use creative strategies to foster residents’ agency, social cohesion, and narrative change. Priority will be given to organizations that have existing support infrastructure and that demonstrate particularly well-formed Creative Placemaking practices. Nonprofit organizations and government entities from across the country are eligible to apply by January 31, 2020.
