Creative Placemaking

Grants available

Cultural Corridor Consortium


Thank you for your interest in T4America’s grant opportunity for creative placemaking projects in three new cities to join our Cultural Corridor Consortium. The application period is closed. 

Note: On May 29, 2017 the PDF application was updated with fillable entries and a clarification on the required attachments.

After working closely with Nashville, Portland and San Diego over the last few years, Transportation for America is seeking to award $50,000 (each) to creative placemaking projects in three new cities that engage residents, attract the attention of local public works and transportation agencies, and spark new conversations that bring more people to the table to plan and implement new transportation investments. We are especially committed to funding collaborative projects that expand transportation opportunities and local control for low-income people, recent immigrants, and people of color living in communities that have experienced disproportionate disinvestment and disconnection.

Full eligibility details and information about the grant are available in the full PDF version of the application.

The application period closed Friday, June 2, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. EDT. Thank you for your interest. We are currently reviewing applications
