Cook Inlet Housing Authority

Anchorage, Alaska



This 3-year project grant supports Cook Inlet Housing Authority in advancing its Creative Placemaking strategy in the Spenard neighborhood in Anchorage, Alaska. As part of the 2015 ArtPlace America Community Development Initiative, Cook Inlet leverages local, indigenous arts and culture practices into its development approach to improve the social, cultural, economic and physical conditions of the community. An additional investment in partnership with the Social Investment Practice will catalyze Inlet’s vision for comprehensive and equitable community development, housing and commercial corridor revitalization.
