The Levitt AMP Grant Awards is an exciting matching grant program made possible by the Mortimer and Mimi Levitt Foundation, a national creative place-making funder dedicated to strengthening the social fabric of America through the power of free music. With Levitt AMP, the joy of live music is bringing communities together in small and mid-sized towns and cities across the country.
While Levitt’s program of permanent outdoor music venues, each presenting 50+ free concerts annually, is tailored to large metro areas with populations of over 400,000 (due to financial sustainability and audience development considerations), the Levitt AMP Grant Awards are specifically designed to meet the needs and capacity of small to mid-sized towns and cities.
Since 2015, the Levitt Foundation has awarded more than $2.3 million total to 38 communities across America through the Levitt AMP grant program.
