We’d like to thank every community that applied for our Prosperous Places Placemaking Mini-Grant! We had twice as many projects this year than last, 28 in all, and they were very competitive. With $54,000 in program funding made available by the Regional Prosperity Council this year, CUPPAD will provide support funding to 18 regionally significant projects. Placemaking capitalizes on a local community’s assets, inspiration and potential, creating good public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness, and economic well-being. Projects utilizing Prosperous Places funds for this cycle are to be completed between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019. We will be posting project updates as we receive them on our Facebook page.
The complete list of projects and descriptions can be seen at the Regional Prosperity Initiative website.
Just a reminder that if your community received a mini-grant last year, reporting is due before we can disperse this year’s funds.
