Are you a young professional passionate about Columbus? Do you want to impact our city's future? If you seek to help make Columbus the best place to live, work and raise a family, Mayor Michael B. Coleman and City Council President Andrew J. Ginther have empowered the Create Columbus Commission to give you the means by which to shape our community. The Commission has introduced the Create Columbus Grants Program to encourage young visionaries to launch innovative initiatives that will continue Columbus' renaissance.
The grants will provide financial support for one-time events, initiatives or programs that impact young professionals. These initiatives should be innovative and community-based with a young professionals component. Some areas of experience to consider include the arts, sports, entertainment, careers, neighborhoods and transportation.
If you have a fabulous plan in mind, you can file for a Create Columbus Grant through August 30. For more information on eligibility and how to apply, check out the grant application here. You can also send questions to CreateColumbusGrants@gmail.com.
