Ignite Baltimore is making two Ignition Grants, of up to $2,250 each, available to support new, innovative projects that aim to make Baltimore a better place to live and work. These grants are funded by proceeds from Ignite Baltimore ticket sales.
Applications must be submitted by February 22, 2013 at 11:59 pm EST. The selected projects will be announced at Ignite Baltimore 12 on March 28, 2013. Application available here.
Past grants have supported supplies for low-earning women, who are using their crafting skills to generate income, so that they could sell their products at farmers’ markets; interviews with people who are homeless to encourage understanding of the experience of homelessness; a filmmaking course for youth in the Walbrook neighborhood; video tours of Baltimore’s parks and trails; and development of a website to showcase Baltimore’s dance community.
