If you haven’t found a way to bring your project ideas to life, CreatINg Places could be the funding program for you. As an innovative crowdgranting program sponsored by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) in conjunction with Patronicity.com, CreatINg Places represents a golden opportunity for cities, towns, and non-profits to build amazing public spaces throughout the Hoosier state.
A place-based crowdfunding grant program, CreatINg Places employs a donation and reward-based method of crowdfunding called “crowdgranting”. In crowdgranting, citizens actively support projects and activities through web-based donations which, if the fundraising goal is reached within a set time, are matched by a sponsor.
CreatINg Places aims to help generate public involvement in the selection of creative improvements within their own communities, help provide the funding to see the project through completion, and instill community pride when citizens become invested in their surroundings.
