Description Our Town is the National Endowment for the Arts’ creative placemaking grants program.

These grants support projects that integrate arts, culture, and design activities into efforts that strengthen communities by advancing local economic, physical, and/or social outcomes.

Successful Our Town projects ultimately lay the groundwork for systemic changes that sustain the integration of arts, culture, and design into strategies for strengthening communities.

Our Town offers support for projects in two areas:
• Place-Based Projects.

Through arts engagement, cultural planning, design, and/or artist/creative industry support, these projects contribute to improved quality of life in local communities.

These projects require a partnership between a nonprofit organization and a local government entity, with one of the partners being a cultural organization.

Matching grants range from $25,000 to $200,000, with a minimum cost share/match equal to the grant amount.

• Knowledge Building Projects.

These projects build and disseminate knowledge about how to leverage arts, culture, and design as mechanisms for strengthening communities.

These grants are available to arts service or design service organizations, and/or other national or regional membership, policy, or university-based organizations.

These projects require a partnership that will facilitate the knowledge sharing and/or exchange.

Matching grants range from $25,000 to $100,000, with a minimum cost share/match equal to the grant amount.
