Our programs have established specific objectives to advance programmatic goals. These objectives are called focus areas. They are described in detail in the Programs section of this website. It is through focus areas that grant opportunities are made available to grantseekers.

Funding opportunities take three forms:

  • Open on an ongoing basis, without deadlines.
  • Open for a limited time, with specific deadlines.
  • By invitation from a Kresge program officer.­­­

We post grant and social investment opportunities here and announce them on the front page of our website as Program Updates. You also may be notified of these opportunities by subscribing to email alerts or by following @kresgefdn on Twitter.

Place-based Initiatives

We welcome proposals from organizations that:

  • Embed arts and culture in larger community revitalization initiatives.
  • Engage in cross-disciplinary, cross-sector activities.
  • Exhibit strong leadership.
  • Include artists and arts organizations.
  • Extend benefits to all stakeholders, especially low-income community members.
  • Demonstrate commitment to sustained engagement and empowerment of low-income residents.
  • Work to ensure current residents can remain in their community even where revitalization changes neighborhood economics.

In addition, we look for projects and organizations in communities that:

  • Lack traditional investors, but have secured some public or philanthropic investments to support other elements of community revitalization.
  • Demonstrate success in pursuing creative placemaking strategies.
  • Show support for the creative placemaking effort from multiple sectors.

We accept and review these proposals on an ongoing basis. There is no deadline.
