INVESTING IN NATIVE COMMUNITIES
This web portal contains funding data, research, historical context, and resources to help users: 1) Understand why funding for Native communities is important; 2) Visualize the landscape of philanthropic funding over the years; and 3) Learn from the knowledge and experiences of other organizations. Their goal is to centralize and provide access to crucial information needed by foundations who are interested in supporting Native communities and causes. The information on the site can help funders who are delving into this work for the first time as well as more experienced funders who want to increase their capacity and knowledge. Investing in Native Communities is a partnership of Native Americans in Philanthropy and Candid, with support from the Bush Foundation, Henry Luce Foundation, Marguerite Casey Foundation, Northwest Area Foundation, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

NATIVE AMERICAN CREATIVE PLACEMAKING
That "Placemaking was always known to Native Americans" undergirds a new "Native American Creative Placemaking" report from HAC which examines some Native American creative placemaking efforts while offering a first of its kind interactive map. The paper also notes funding sources and emphasizes that placemaking “offers Native people on opportunity to reconnect with their traditional ways of life” as an antidote to injustices including forced assimilation, trauma in boarding schools, and extreme poverty.
PROGRAMS SUPPORTING ART IN THE PUBLIC REALM
A challenge for artists and funders in this intersectional work is to advance both aesthetic and community aims. How do programs balance community development needs and goals with opportunities for artists to experiment? Americans for the Arts and the Barr Foundation share the findings of a National Scan of Programs Supporting Art in the Public Realm. The scan highlights overarching themes and offers snapshots of 30 programs supporting and building capacity for artists to work in the public realm.
