Destination Downtown

Supporting community arts organizations, including collectives, that embody artistic excellence and foster cultural participation in order to build vibrant communities, amplify the voice of underrepresented communities, and celebrate the diversity of Suffolk County. 

Destination Downtown is the Creative Placemaking Initiative of Suffolk County that complements the County Executive’s Transit-Oriented Development agenda. Transit-oriented development (TOD), is a type of community development that includes a mixture of housing, office, retail and/or other amenities integrated into a walkable neighborhood and located within a half-mile of quality public transportation. 

Through Destination Downtown, Suffolk County will provide two grants of $25,000 each for creative placemaking projects in downtown communities that contribute toward their livability and help transform them into lively, beautiful, and sustainable places with the arts at their core.
