The New Jersey State Council on the Arts awarded The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking a grant of $12,500 for the 2015 fiscal year. The Council's support will help NCCP strengthen several programs. These include community coaching, thought leadership, and creative sector research. All funding from the State Council will be used exclusively in New Jersey.
The grant represents a 25% increase over the fiscal year 2014 grant of $10,000.
NCCP's grant funding is administered by PlanSmart NJ, NCCP's fiscal agent.
We thank the members and staff of the Council for their ongoing support.
