2021 Core Grant Applications Being Accepted

By Kim Wunner
Design Grant Applications

The Community Design Collaborative is accepting applications for its Core Grant Program for the 2021Year.

Access to preliminary design is critical to the successful outcome of development projects envisioned by nonprofit organizations. Unfortunately, nonprofits rarely have the resources to pay for preliminary design. 

Our community engaged approach matches organizations with skilled volunteers from the fields of architecture, engineering, and construction. Our volunteers provide nonprofits with the design process and tools they need to engage their communities, put their visions down on paper, and advance to the next stage: gaining support, raising funds, and building project.
