Philadelphia communities face substantial hurdles when attempting to reinvent public space, especially in communities of color. Feet First Philly is partnering with the Department of Public Health to provide funding for mini-grants to create public space amenities, particularly in underserved communities. The mini-grants, between $500 and $2000, will be awarded to address the financial and technical barriers that organizations face when creating safe public space enhancements. Awardees can use grant money to support public space projects including educational materials, construction materials, event costs, insurance, stipends, staff time, or other needs. Examples of public space projects include but are not limited to parklets, pedestrian plazas, temporary demonstrations, daylighting, and art installations.
