Community Development Grant Opportunities in Oklahoma

Room: Meeting Room F
Did you know that funding from the USDA and AARP could be directed toward arts-based projects and infrastructural improvements in your communities? Through the support of the USDA Rural Business Development grant, the Oklahoma Blues Hall of Fame and Museum was able to make much-needed building repairs and maintenance, which will protect and preserve the historic juke joint and landmark that was originally the childhood home of famed blues musician D.C. Minner. The City of Eufaula was recently awarded a 2021 Community Facilities Grant provided by AARP. This grant will support the installation of permanent outdoor musical instruments along the downtown corridor of Eufaula. The instruments will be strategically placed in pairs to encourage social engagement, and staged at least 30 meters apart to encourage walking and interaction. The goal of the outdoor music instrument installation is to create social interaction and innovation in the community. Panelists will discuss the grant application processes and share information on how other Oklahoma communities can leverage funding from the USDA and AARP to make their communities more vibrant, livable, accessible, and engaging for local residents and visitors.
