The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued an invitation to the arts and creative sector to participate in a joint webinar on Wednesday, July 7, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. EDT to learn about two new, innovative community development funding opportunities.
HUD and the U.S. Department of Transportation released two notices detailing funding available through HUD’s Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program and the Sustainable Communities Challenge Grant Program. Combined these programs will offer up to $175 million in grants. Under both programs, arts organizations are eligible to partner with state and local governments, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), transit agencies, philanthropic and non-profit organizations and other eligible applicants to develop combined grant proposals.
Anyone interested in participating in the webinar should log on to HUD’s website at 3:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, July 7, 2010.
