At the same time Downtown Colorado Springs recently became a certified Creative District, Manitou Springs was also accepted into the Colorado Creative Districts Program as a candidate district.

That means the little town works toward certification for two years. Candidates are offered direct funding and professional assistance, training and networking with peers. Candidate districts can apply for certification at the end of two years.

Each candidate is awarded a $5,000 matching grant from Colorado Creative Industries.
