When a neighborhoods suffers neglect, the effects aren’t isolated. Reinvesting in Central Ohio’s neighborhoods, sparking growth, and improved community creates ripple effects for the entire city. Neighborhood revitalization provides a viable solution to the cycle of struggle making it impossible for many to achieve the American dream.
Columbus SOUP seeks to advance the causes for these communities and highlight their contributions to our city. We support projects that present experiential problem-solving methods, unique tools, and a collaborative environment that enables local residents and organizations to work together to solve the most complex problems.
Selected applicants are highly encouraged to attend a SOUP workshop which will occur prior to the event. This workshop will help prepare SOUP applicants to present their project at the event. The workshop date and time will be announced to selected applicants after they are selected.
