AAABoR REALTORS® 2016 Placemaking Challenge Grant Program

The Ann Arbor Area Board of REALTORS® is offering grants to community and/or neighborhood organizations for creating small, inexpensive, and incremental community projects.

The projects should foster activities that can help to improve a neighborhood and make it a better place to live, work, and play. The grant program is called
"Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper Placemaking Challenge."

The grants will be funded through the National Association of REALTORS® Placemaking Initiative Program. There are two funding levels: Level one funds up to $1,500 to renew and revitalize existing public spaces and level two funds up to $3,000 to create new public spaces. The amount could be a portion of or the total cost for the project.

AAABoR is accepting applications for the grants now - September 1, 2016. More information about the types of projects that could be funded can be found here. The grant application must describe the project, have a local REALTOR® as a sponsor for it and have a before photo of the space to be improved.
Some other examples of projects that have received grants in other states are community gardens, farmer markets, play grounds, dog parks, public art displays, walking tours/signage and bus stop enhancements.
