Thank you for your interest in the National Creative Placemaking Fund. 

The National Creative Placemaking Fund invests in planning and development projects where arts and culture play a central role.  ArtPlace actively seeks to build a portfolio of funded projects that is a microcosm of the varied creative placemaking strategies used across the United States through this program.  Since 2011, the National Creative Placemaking Fund has invested in 227 projects across 152 communities of all sizes in 43 states and the District of Columbia.

The 2016 National Creative Placemaking Fund open application process has closed.  Thank you for your interest and we encourage you to consider applying next year.  See below for a brief video about this funding opportunity, and be sure to sign up for our mailing list in the top right-hand corner of your screen to receive updates on next year's call for proposals.
