Applications for a $250 Nano Grant Accepted Until August 31st

In support of the myNKY vision to promote vibrant communities, The Catalytic Fund and The Center for Great Neighborhoods (The Center) are bringing the myNKY Nano Grant program to the city of Ludlow. Up to three $250 grants will be awarded to people who live or work in Ludlow and have creative ideas to bring their community together.

The purpose of the Nano Grant program is to support creative place-making ideas created by local residents, students or workers that bring Northern Kentuckians together, build a sense of community, celebrate our differences and foster community pride.

 In 2016, the Nano Grants program was offered in Dayton, Florence and Pendleton County, resulting in creative events like the Stories of Dayton and Ewe-nique Art Hop, interesting ideas such as the Fowl Weather sidewalk painting project, the Imagine This! student engagement project and a video contest to promote Dayton.

Elishia Chamberlain, City Administrator of Ludlow, is excited about the possibilities for creative projects in her community and says, “I think this could be fantastic for Ludlow.”

The Catalyic Fund and The Center have committed to provide three $250 grants to Ludlow  this year.
