Grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 to Portland area, Oregon nonprofit organizations and public agencies for arts-based community-driven programs. Eligible projects are those that specifically benefit communities of color and other historically marginalized communities.
The Community Placemaking program helps people tackle community challenges or opportunities through creative, arts-based, equity-focused projects. Project proposals should demonstrate broad community support.
The Community Placemaking program has four objectives:
- Placemaking: People’s connections to each other and to places they care about are strengthened.
- Equity: People of color and members of historically marginalized communities have power and resources to influence their neighborhoods and communities.
- Partnerships: People’s efforts are maximized because they work in partnership with each other and with Metro.
- Leadership: People participate in projects and decisions that affect them.
