Prosperous Places Mini-Grants Applications for 2019 are Open!

March 15, 2019

The 2019 Prosperous Places Placemaking Mini-Grant program is now accepting applications through May 3, 2019.

Through the Regional Prosperity Initiative, CUPPAD has established a competitive mini-grant program available to local governments and nonprofit organizations to initiate or improve placemaking principles in their local communities. Initiatives that enhance downtowns, parks, neighborhoods, plazas, or any public gathering space can greatly impact a community’s sense of place. The Prosperous Places Mini-Grant Program aims to build a thriving future for Central Upper Peninsula communities by creating places where people want to live, work, and play.

Grant awards may range between $500 and $5,000 and require a 1:1 match.

Projects utilizing Prosperous Places funds are to be completed between June 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.

Please see the RPI website for eligibility details and to download the application.

If you have any questions, please contact Ryan Soucy at or 906-399-1371.
