OLD TRENTON NEIGHBORHOOD ARTS + COMMUNITY GRANTS
This grant program supports grassroots revitalization and creative projects in the Old Trenton neighborhood. It was set up in partnership with Isles, Inc., a nonprofit that has worked to improve Old Trenton for over 30 years. Funds for this program come from the New Jersey Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit Program, which supports resident-led revitalization plans.
The Arts & Community Grants program builds on the priorities of the original Old Trenton neighborhood plan (2007), as well as the 2016 Creek to Canal (C2C) Creative District plan, which includes the Old Trenton neighborhood (available at www.creektocanalcreative.org). These two plans aim to make Old Trenton a safe, active, and vibrant community, with a particular focus on reclaiming underused buildings and spaces, and supporting the arts as an agent of social change.
