Region Five Development Commision received funding from ArtPlace America's 2016 National Creative Placemaking Fund.
Today, ArtPlace America (ArtPlace) is proud to announce the 29 creative placemaking projects to receive funding in communities of all sizes across 19 states and 2 US territories. Region Five Development Commission (R5DC) is one of 29 projects chosen, from almost 1400 applications, to receive funding through its National Creative Placemaking Fund in 2016. In these projects, residents use arts and culture strategies to strengthen the social, physical, and economic fabric of their communities.
ArtPlace’s National Creative Placemaking Fund is a highly competitive national program – funding 2% of initial applications – that invests money in communities across the country in which artists, arts organizations, and arts and culture activity help drive community development change across 10 sectors of community planning and development: agriculture and food; economic development; education and youth; environment and energy; health; housing; immigration; public safety; transportation; or workforce development.
