About the Program:
The purpose of the Brookland Beautification Small Grant Program is to make available opportunities for individuals and organizations within the greater Brookland community to provide visually creative beautification projects along the 12th Street commercial corridor, Monroe Street, and other significant open/public spaces in the immediate vicinity as set forth in the Brookland/CUA Small Area Plan. The small grant program will empower local residents and stakeholders to create and implement neighborhood beautification projects that are green and sustainable. Project themes may include but are not limited to public art, branding, way finding, place-making, connectivity, and Temporiums, just to mention a few. The project deliverables may be in the form of art installations, plantings, murals, window treatments or other creative and visual forms of expression.
