NEW JERSEY RESOURCES

 ABOUT 

The first iteration of this page lists resources that could be valuable to creative placemakers working in New Jersey.  It includes information about grantmakers, community and cultural organizations, consultants, artists, and municipalities involved in creative placemaking.  You can also learn about training and development opportunities. Stay tuned for updated resources from this and other states. 

If you or your organization should be listed here, please contact Community Director Andrea Orlando at andrea@cpcommunities.org
