Got an Awesome Idea? Let’s Make It Happen

Friday, January 26, 2024

Apply now for grant funding of up to $5,000 to make your concept come alive in Downtown!

Downtown should be a place that has something for everyone. To make it that way, we want to hear from you! The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership has launched a new Downtown Placemaking Grant to encourage Pittsburghers to utilize and program our public spaces through community-focused events and activations. Local individuals, non-profit organizations and civic groups are all encouraged to apply for $1,000 – $5,000 grants for creative projects and activities that help us create vibrant and welcoming experiences in places around the Golden Triangle.

“We recognize the transformative power of placemaking and know it can be a little intimidating to do that Downtown,” said PDP President and CEO Jeremy Waldrup. “This initiative is a unique call to action for anyone who has an idea and is invested in shaping our Downtown through experiences that inspire, connect and enrich the lives of all who live, work and visit our city.”

This grant opportunity is open to both experienced and new creative minds who are passionate about Downtown Pittsburgh and our community. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, allowing for projects to be implemented throughout the year. To apply, candidates should complete the online form at the link below. Successful projects will help us find new ways to make Downtown fun, entertaining and engaging. We look forward to hearing from you!
