NACo installed a new program Creative Counties Placemaking Challenge.
NACo said about the program:
The National Association of Counties – in partnership with Americans for the Arts – has launched the Creative Counties Placemaking Challenge to train local leaders from rural and mid-sized counties on how to advance arts-based economic and community development to address local challenges. Counties with populations of less than 250,000 are encouraged to apply today at www.naco.org/creativecounties! Selected teams will have the opportunity to attend a 2 ½ day training in Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa and will receive technical assistance and mentoring. Applications are due October 13th.
NACo has established this program with grant money from the National Endowment for the Arts.
