The American Indian Community Housing Organization is overjoyed to announce that we have been selected as a member of the Bush Foundation's Community Creativity Cohort 2.
AICHO is one of 40 organizations from North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, and the 23 Native nations that share the geography selected by the Foundation for its commitment to making art and culture central to problem solving. All participating organizations are either led by and serving people of color or Indigenous people, and/or are led by and serving people from rural communities or non-metropolitan cities or towns with populations of less than 50,000 people.
Each member of the cohort will receive a general operating support grant of $100,000 over a three-year period and access to other funds to help them improve their work and strengthen their organizations. Cohort members were selected from a pool of over 100 applicants from across the region. The program will officially kick off in Nov. 2018 in the Twin Cities at the first annual convening of the Cohort. More information on the Community Creativity Cohort 2 and its members can be found here.
