The Create Columbus Commission announced this morning that $82,000 is being distributed to the community through the latest round of their grant funding program that awards recipients that will help to enhance projects that reflect the interests of the young professional community in Columbus.

“Thanks to support from the City of Columbus and The Columbus Foundation, Create Columbus was able to expand the footprint of our grant program by reaching new demographics, new neighborhoods, and emerging YP interests in Columbus”, said Kevin Tyler, Chair of the Create Columbus Commission.

The 11 programs that have been awarded funding include a photo exhibition at the OSU Urban Arts Space, a business workshop series hosted by Wild Goose Creative, a fashion incubator and retail space created by the Alternative Fashion Mob and many others.

“For the second year in a row, the Create Columbus Commission has selected an impressive list of initiatives that align with the City’s goals to create a smart, open, and vibrant community for young professionals,” said Mayor Michael B. Coleman. “These projects have the potential to impact our community in a positive way, and I look forward to seeing the results throughout the city.”
