Grant Oppotunities

Knight Foundation has recently announced two new grant opportunities that can further develop and enhance the Tallahassee area.

8 80: Knight has partnered with 8 80 Cities for the second year of the Emerging City Champions. The program supports young people with bold ideas for inclusive, collaborative and creative community projects that promote civic engagement. The Emerging City Champions will receive ongoing professional support and $5,000 to make their idea a reality. Applicants should be between the ages of 19-35 and can apply directly on their website, beginning April 28th.  For any questions, please contact Ryan O’Connor at [email protected].

Place Labs: Several weeks ago, Knight Foundation hosted a webinar alongside Place Labs on the 9 Principles of Ethical Redevelopment, a people-focused approach to development. Place Labs is inviting 15 participants from Knight’s communities to join a series of discussions and workshops. Place Lab will review all the nominations and select the 15 participants who will be invited to become members and to join the workshop series. Knight will cover the cost of three (3) in-person trips to Chicago for the 15 participants from Knight’s communities. Candidates should be working on current projects that impact public life, public space and the built environment in their community. The projects can be at the building, block, neighborhood or city-scale. The projects are not confined to real estate but can range from capital projects to a local events or residency programs.
