Creative Communities is not currently funded by the Utah Legislature.
The Creative Communities Initiative support innovative connections between culture, art, community building, civic engagement, community planning and use of public space for enhancement of economic opportunities and quality of life in Utah’s communities.
These grants serve as catalysts for innovative community partnerships and civic dialogue on creative economic development and provide matching funds to implement projects to that end. A unique aspect of the program is the leadership-driven components. Project leaders are trained with necessary facilitation skills to create civic dialogue and leverage critical support from the community. After the project is completed, these leaders continue to be a valuable professional resource for the community. Contact Wendi Hassan for more information about the Creative Communities Initiative.
