Public Art for Neighborhoods Fund

2020-21 Community Connection Grants

About the PAFN 2020-21 Community Connection Grants

PAFN Community Connection Grants are designed to support the work of artists leading in their own communities, partnering with their neighborhoods and with neighborhood-based organizations.

The 2020-2021 grants will fund neighborhood-based arts projects, with a preference for projects that...

  • help address the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, and/or
  • help advance racial justice priorities on a hyperlocal level that have been identified by the neighborhoods themselves. 

A total of $50,000 has been reserved. Grant requests can be between $500 and $2,500.

Through this grant program, artists can help envision a more connected, just, and equitable future for everyone.

This is a City of Indianapolis grant program, administered by the Arts Council of Indianapolis. The funds to be granted have been provided to the City by private developers in partial or full satisfaction of their public art requirement as outlined in Ch. 271 of the Code of Ordinances of Indianapolis-Marion County. 

At least 50% of funds granted through this program will support projects in neighborhoods where the average household income is less than 138% of the current Federal poverty line.
