In 2017, The Crocker Art Museum was awarded a $228,000 grant by the Institute of Museums and Library Services (IMLS) to help implement and support Block by Block 2.0, a community initiative taking place in Sacramento's Promise Zone, a federally designated area of need encompassing Sacramento City Council Districts 2, 5, and 8. The grant is reserved for projects that promote the role of museums as essential partners in addressing the needs of their communities by leveraging their resources to identify and implement solutions. Additional support for Block by Block is provided by SMUD, Art Works, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Download our PDF one sheet here.

Block by Block would not be possible without the feedback and support of the Art Impact Collective, an active and highly dynamic partnership comprised of the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency, Promise Zone community representatives, and community organizations including the Roberts Family Development Center, Sol Collective, Sojourner Truth African American Museum, and 916Ink.
