Grants aim to help Covington businesses

The Center for Great Neighborhoods is focusing its fifth round of Creative Community Grants on economic opportunities in Covington. Projects receiving grants will be focused on small business growth, entrepreneurship, workforce development or expansion of job opportunities, skill building or sharing of skills with the community.

Grants will be awarded to artistic and creative businesses, defined broadly as an individual or group engaging in creative pursuits including performance art, folk art, architecture, visual art, design, culinary arts and more. Applicants do not have to live or work in Covington, but a connection to the Covington community is ideal.

Four grants worth $5,000 each will be given in this round.

The awards are funded through a multi-year grant the center received from the Kresge Foundation to implement creative placemaking activities in Covington.

Applications are open through Nov. 30, and decisions will be made by Jan. 15.
