We must be getting better at this grant writing thing!

We just received the good word that we received funding from the Neighborhood Partnership Initiative to make a mini-video documentary this summer about CAFAC, the SPEAK Project, and using the arts as a tool to build community! So exciting!

CAFAC board members Ryan Knoke and Montana Scheff were honored with the Community Education & Advocacy Award at the Heritage Preservation Awards on Thursday for their work in preserving the Central Neighborhood in South Minneapolis.

The awards, given by the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission, The Minneapolis Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, and Preserve Minneapolis, honor exemplary projects, individuals and community organizations that celebrate and enhance the heritage and historic character of Minneapolis.

Way to go Ryan and Montana!
