Weight of Architecture Design Service Grant 2017
The Weight of Architecture Design Service Grant is a program that offers pre-development design assistance to a local nonprofit organization or community group who could benefit from the services of skilled architects.
"How can architecture help solve a challenge your organization faces and help achieve your mission?" This design service grant is intended to provide design assistance to local 501(c)3 non-profit organizations that can benefit from the services of skilled architects and designers and that would not otherwise have the resources to retain such services.
