Since 2013, the Create Columbus Catalyst Grants Program has distributed more than $275,000 to enhance experience of young people in the greater Columbus region. These initiatives have covered a wide variety of areas that aligned with the Commission’s priorities and have ranged from public art, music, financial literacy, development, diversity, education, and more; all having greatly impacted the Columbus community–see grantee listing here.

The Create Columbus Grants Program supports initiatives by and for young people that help make Columbus the best place to live, work, and thrive in the nation.
