The grant is designed to fund the type of space enhancement and community transformation that sparks community wide conversation and creativity. It is the belief of both OCRA and IOTD that these types of social and built environments should occur at the local level and be community driven. It is the people, places and spaces that make Indiana a great place to live. Placemaking involves a working partnership with local governments, residents, community groups, and organizations as well as business and community agencies. OCRA and IOTD encourage these projects to be community unique and locally inspired.
Eligible Applicants Include:
The most competitive applications will likely demonstrate strong partnership. We strongly encourage youth (students of all ages and recent graduate or graduate age individuals) in the project design and implementation.
Examples of Eligible Projects:
THIS SHOULD NOT SERVE AS AN INCLUSIVE LIST - BE UNIQUE
There are many eligible projects. These dollars should be used to create a small change that spurs conversation and community engagement. The space should in some way be transformed for the better. Existing and underutilized assets should include a new or additional use. Art should be an overall component of your community transformation and used as an agent of change.
Ineligible Projects Include:
Grant requests between $2,500 and $5,000 will be accepted. There is a 1 to .5 local match requirement. For each QuIP dollar requested, the match must be one half dollar. Of that, the match can be either cash, in-kind contributions, or a combination of both.
Applications must be received by 4pm EST on Friday, April 21, 2017.
Questions should be directed to your OCRA Community Liaison.
