TIPPECANOE ARTS FEDERATION SEEKING APPLICATIONS
FOR ELLSWORTH-ROMIG NEIGHBORHOOD NANO GRANT

Lafayette, Ind.- The Tippecanoe Arts Federation (TAF), with funding from the City of Lafayette, is seeking applications for Ellsworth-Romig Neighborhood Nano Grants. Nano Grants are $250 - $5,000, low-risk grants for individuals who live or work in the Ellsworth-Romig Neighborhood and have a creative idea to bring people together, create a sense of place, and strengthen their community. Nano Grants serve as a vehicle to encourage experimentation, build leadership opportunities, and turn ideas into reality.

Nano Grant projects should focus on creatively benefiting the Ellsworth-Romig community and bringing community members together. Every project should contain at least one accessible element that is free to the public. Eligible projects should not exclude groups of people socially or politically and should align with the City of Lafayette's human rights ordinance. Projects should be well-planned, feasible, and able to be completed within three months of approval. Funding cannot be used for projects that are already completed or partially underway

Any individual who is an Ellsworth-Romig resident, student, property owner, or worker (works at least 15 hours/week in Ellsworth-Romig) is eligible to apply for a Nano Grant. Individuals may only receive Nano Grant funding once per year.
