Calling all small to mid-sized towns and cities across America: show us how you’ll transform an underused public space through the power of free, live music!
The Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards is an exciting matching grant opportunity, created by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a pioneer in the creative placemaking movement. Up to 15 nonprofits serving small to mid-sized towns and cities will receive $25K each in matching funds to produce their own Levitt AMP [Your City] Music Series—an outdoor, free concert series featuring a diverse lineup of high caliber entertainment. And just like in previous years, the public will decide the Top 25 finalists through an online voting process taking place this November. So get ready to rally your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors to vote and bring free, live music to your community!
“We’re thrilled to once again bring the joy of Levitt to more towns and cities across America,” says Sharon Yazowski, executive director of the Levitt Foundation. “Levitt concerts create a shared sense of community and connectedness that is incredibly important in today’s world. We’ve seen how past Levitt AMP winners are making a meaningful impact across America, bringing people together of all ages and backgrounds and reinvigorating underused public spaces.”
The Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards, now in its third year, is an annual creative placemaking grants competition to activate dormant public spaces through free concerts. The acronym “AMP” speaks to the goals of the program:
