Is there a corner in your neighborhood that needs sprucing up? A space along your street that could be more attractive and welcoming to the public? Do you have an idea about what is needed but just need some help in funding it? Then “Space 2 Place” is an opportunity for you or your organization.
Aimed at being simple and practical, Big Sky Economic Development (BSED) is once more making available grants of up to $5,000 to help fund small, incremental improvements in communities in Yellowstone County. It is intended to make public spaces more beautiful, more engaging, more interesting and more enjoyable.
Anyone can qualify for a Space -2 –Place grant, individually or in concert with a civic organization. The project can be as simple as placing a flower bed, or a bench, to developing a city park or streetscape.
All completed projects must be visible and useable by the public. The total project cost should not exceed $10,000. Projects must be completed by September 30, 2020. Recipients are expected to provide volunteer labor to bring their projects to fruition.
