Through a partnership with the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), the AIAS is able to grant over $15,000 this spring to nine different schools to implement their community-based design projects. The grants are being offered as part of the partnership through the Freedom by Design (FBD) program. Additional funding will be granted later this semester. Each program’s project is planned to provide design-build solutions to address the following barriers: physical, socio-economic, educational, environmental, and cultural.

Spring 2022 FBD grant recipients and their clients :

Each project is unique and each program will be making an immediate, positive impact for those associated with their client and their community overall.

All programs are encouraged to provide documentation of their project in an effort to share their achievements with the AIAS community. We can’t wait to see these projects come to life!
