A new round of grant funding is now available through the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) Project Stream. The PPA Program offers opportunities for arts organizations, community-based groups and individual artists to apply for up to $3,000 in funding to support performance activities, exhibitions, and other arts projects that are presented to the public. Funded events must take place between September 1, 2012 and August 31, 2013. The deadline for grant submission is June 29, 2012.
The Project Stream applications for the 2014-2015 year were due this year on June 20th. We received a total of 32 applications from organizations in all seven counties in PRAA’s service area. The grant applications were reviewed by grant panelists on August 14 and 15. The panelists did a great job of reviewing and scoring the applications and were pleased to see the variety of the grant projects. A two-day panel meeting this year rather than our usual one-day meeting eliminated the stress of past years!
Grant awards will be announced in mid-to late-September. All applicants will receive a letter by mail from the PRAA office. Full details of the next steps to take for those awarded a grant will be included in the mailing.
A Grant Awards Ceremony will take place in mid-October. Watch for this announcement!
