Allegany Arts Council accepting grant applications for 2022-2023
CUMBERLAND—The Allegany Arts Council is now accepting applications for its 2022-2023 grants program. The program, made possible by County Arts Development funding of the Maryland State Arts Council, supports non-profit organizations and individual artists in the creation of activities and programs that champion the arts in our community. The deadline to enter is June 30, 2022.
This round of funding will be for General Operating Grants only, and must be used for activities, programs, projects and operations which occur between July 1, 2022-June 30, 2023. General Operating Grants may be used to support the daily operations of arts agencies, and are intended to fill critical funding gaps which often limit arts organizations in paying professional staff, managing facilities, or pursuing capital improvements.
Grants are available only to 501(c)3 organizations whose primary mission is arts-related. They are awarded on a 1:1 cash match that may not include in-kind support. The maximum award per organization is $3,500 annually. Details on grant eligibility and guidelines, along with grant application forms, can be found by visiting our website at https://www.alleganyartscouncil.org/grants/.
