The City of Flagstaff invites artists, individuals, community groups, schools and local businesses to apply for a Beautification in Action (BIA) grant. Applications will be accepted through Mar. 15 at 5 p.m. Up to $4,500 is available per project.
Specific projects that beautify and revitalize the urban environment can take the form of community gardens, neighborhood paths, benches, sculptures, murals, mosaics and more. Priority will be given to community-driven efforts that provide a lasting benefit, such as building neighborhood relationships, fostering a sense of ownership and pride, inspiring playfulness, and greening the environment.
“The Beautification and Public Art Commission is proud to support these community initiated and community inclusive collaborative projects that enhance Flagstaff’s public spaces for the enjoyment of all,” said Jana Weldon, Program Manager for Beautification, Arts & Sciences. “We are thrilled with the continued diversity and scope of applications.”
BIA grants are funded by the City of Flagstaff’s Bed, Board and Beverage (BBB) tax. Eligible applicants are awarded through a competitive, biannual process each March and September.
