In support of the myKY vision to promote vibrant communities, The Catalytic Fund and The Center for Great Neighborhoods are offering the myNKY Nano Grant program to six Northern Kentucky communities in 2017:

  • Dayton
  • Ludlow
  • Grant County
  • Elsmere
  • Taylor Mill
  • Pendleton County

The purpose of the Nano Grant program is to support creative place-making ideas created by local residents, students or workers that bring Northern Kentuckians together, build a sense of community, celebrate our differences and foster community pride.

To apply, you can either download the application and mail it in (directions are on the application) or apply online. We are also offering informational sessions for potential applicants, to answer questions and further explain the process.
