Citizens’ Institute on Rural Design

  • March 12, 2021

About CIRD | Citizens' Institute on Rural DesignThe goal of the Citizens’ Institute on Rural Design (CIRD) is to enhance the quality of life and economic viability of rural America through planning, design, and creative placemaking. For 2021, the CIRD program consists of two different opportunities. Through the Local Design Workshops track, up to four communities will be selected to participate in an on-site rural design workshop. The workshops will bring together local residents and leaders from nonprofits, community organizations, and government agencies to develop actionable solutions to the community’s specific design challenge. Each workshop includes a $6,000 stipend to the host community. In addition, up to 15 rural communities will be selected to participate in the Design Learning Cohort track. Rural community leaders from government, nonprofits, local businesses, and civic organizations will be invited to gather together for learning, training, and support to make their community’s vision a reality. The application deadline for both tracks is March 12, 2021. Visit the CIRD website to download the Request for Applications.
