Limited Capacity filling up

This session will explore common locations in our communities and brainstorm ways to ideate and re-envision these bleak spaces into vibrant places. We’ll learn how some innovative placemaking grant programs have made these transformations possible and how a crowdgranting model adopted by state EDCs, community development authorities, foundations and corporations are democratizing access to capital and spurring further economic development. We will speak to the impacts and methods learned from over 450 successfully crowdfunded projects from across the nation and how community led, community driven and community funded interventions can go far beyond just building a beautiful place.
