Apply for funding for arts and cultural programs in 2014 through Cuyahoga Arts & Culture

Cuyahoga Arts & Culture (CAC) encourages nonprofit organizations offering arts and culture programming in Cuyahoga County to apply for funding through its 2014 Project Support grant program. New applicants are encouraged to attend one of three informational workshops in Greater Cleveland in June to learn more about the Project Support grant program, and to visit http://www.cacgrants.org/project-support.php for more information and to apply. The Eligibility Check, the first step in the application process, is due Tuesday, July 2, by 4:30 p.m.

“Over the past six years, funding through our Project Support grant program has helped organizations to offer exciting arts and cultural events, programs, fairs, festivals and countless other projects, giving residents access to a wide array of arts and cultural programs throughout the County,” said executive director Karen Gahl-Mills. “Through our grant programs this year, we’re investing more than $15 million in 174 organizations throughout Cuyahoga County, and we welcome organizations offering arts and culture programs to apply now for grants in 2014." 

At each workshop focusing on CAC’s Project Support grant program, CAC staff will review its grant programs, eligibility requirements and CAC’s application process. The same content will be reviewed at each session. Workshops are optional, but are a valuable learning opportunity for new applicants. One of the workshops will be held on Tuesday, June 18, from 3–4 p.m. at the Lee Road Library, 2345 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights. Attendees are encouraged to register online at http://cac3.eventbrite.com.
