Level I Neighborhood Art Funds Level II Neighborhood Art Funds

Neighborhood Art Funds support collaborative art projects for Raleigh’s neighborhoods that support artistic and cultural exploration, connection, and understanding. You are urged to develop proposals that make the most of resources and strengthen partnerships drawing on individual, group and community assets, skills, and talents. All art projects are initiated, planned, and carried out by community members for the benefit of the neighborhood.

This initiative is supported by the City of Raleigh Arts Commission and is a partnership between Raleigh Arts and Raleigh’s Housing and Neighborhoods department through its Neighborhood Improvement Fund initiative.
