Building a Downtown Tucson For Everyone

Grant Program

Building a Downtown Tucson for Everyone is a series of Downtown Tucson Partnership (DTP) sponsored lectures, programs, and events. DTP's Social Justice Committee reviews and awards grants to programs presented in Downtown Tucson that demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and reach communities not traditionally served by the DTP.

A new round of grants will be available soon! Sign up for our email updates and be on the lookout for an announcement about the Building A Downtown For Everyone grant program.
