$2000 Placemaking Grants
And remember the newly announced BIG SURPRISE! In an effort to activate and foster greater interaction within our neighborhoods, we are hoping to award two eligible neighborhood areas a $2000 grant. A city staff team will work with the neighborhood to identify, design, and plan. As your day begins at the conference, you can enter your neighborhood into the pool of eligible Madison neighborhoods. So, grab your neighbors for a day of great fun and your neighborhood might be the lucky one picked.

Brag about your neighborhood!  We have exhibit tables reserved for your neighborhood to display neighborhood related activities, projects, and publications.  Bring copies to share with others.
