With the unprecedented disruption caused by COVID-19, it is more important than ever to band together as a community and safely provide support to one another. ULI Oklahoma and Downtown Oklahoma City Initiatives have teamed up to offer micro-grants ($1,000-$3,000) to help fund the ideas of individuals or organizations that help lift the spirits of our community through placemaking and public art, and drive support of downtown districts and businesses.
WHAT TYPES OF IDEAS/PROJECTS/INITIATIVES WILL THE GRANTS FUND?
–Any new or unique idea or project that provides support to the downtown OKC community during the COVID-19 disruption and re-opening phases.
–Projects must be based within downtown Oklahoma City. View map here

—Public art or performance art (must have site permissions for site-specific work)

WHAT WILL THE GRANTS NOT FUND?

WHAT IS THE TIMELINE FOR THE AWARDING OF THE GRANTS?
