The new Vibrant Spaces Grant, a pilot program within the Community Development Investment (CDI) Grant Program, is designed to assist with creating vibrant and engaging communities that make it easier to recruit and retain residents, sustain a robust labor force and enhance local quality of life. With the help of this grant, public gathering places will foster community connections and provide accessible locations for the programming and amenities local residents desire—with the additional benefit of boosting foot traffic for area businesses. If your community has a vacant or underutilized space within a key commercial corridor, this grant could be your opportunity to create a community gathering space.
Grants in amounts from $25,000 to $50,000 are available to help local communities develop and enhance public spaces. Application deadline is January 31, 2023.
Only local governments are eligible to apply and only one application per municipality will be considered. Applicants must agree to provide a 1:1 match of the grant amount.
