Building for Equity

Building for Equity will create a new model for our long-running Cultural Facilities grant through a unique combination of funding, technical support, and strategic partnerships. Communities that have historically faced barriers to purchasing and stewarding cultural space will be at the center of the program. Read more about the timeline and funding distribution.
