NEA "Our Town"

Author: Josh Tychonievich

Please see the internal call below for "Our Town," a limited submission funding opportunity from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Our Town is the NEA’s creative placemaking grants program. Through project-based funding, the program supports activities that integrate arts, culture, and design into local efforts that strengthen communities over the long term. Our Town projects engage a wide range of local stakeholders in efforts to advance local economic, physical, and/or social outcomes in communities. Competitive projects are responsive to unique local conditions, develop meaningful and substantive engagement in communities, center equity, advance artful lives, and lay the groundwork for long-term systems change.
All applications are submitted by one organization and require at least one partner organization. The applicant/partner pair must include 1) a nonprofit organization and 2) a local governmental or quasi-governmental entity. If neither of the partners is an arts, design, or cultural entity, then an additional arts, design, or cultural partner is also required.
If you have questions or would like to apply, please contact Josh Tychonievich. Note that submissions must be sent to, not to ISLA. The internal deadline is June 3.
