2019 CED "In Our Neighborhood" Grant Program
WHAT IS IT?
There are countless groups and connections between individuals that together make up our community in Washtenaw County. These “neighborhoods” that we live in are both literal (defined by geography) and figurative – some of us might be members of “neighborhoods” that are based on our vocation or social identity. “Arts and Culture” form the connective tissue that makes these neighborhoods thrive, allowing us to access our individual creative spirit, meaningfully connect with others, support economic activity, and give voice to our many and diverse experiences.
The Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation in partnership with CultureSource invites proposals from interested individuals and nonprofits for ideas and projects that support arts and culture projects in your “Neighborhood” and have a positive impact on the local economy. AAACF is particularly interested in “Neighborhoods” that exist outside of the dominant narrative of Arts and Culture in Washtenaw County.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
NOTE: AAACF would be excited to receive applications from individuals that are (and organizations led by) people of color, women, LGBTQ-identified, and people with low incomes.
