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. Grant awards will be announced in mid-to late-September. All applicants will receive a letter by mail from the PRAA office.
The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Project Stream grant application is now open for applicants to apply. These funds are available through the PCA’s Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) program. The PPA program offers opportunities for arts organizations, community-based groups and individual artists to apply for up to $2,500 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, 2015 and August 31, 2016. The deadline for grant submission is June 22, 2015. Grant applicants in the counties of Armstrong, Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Indiana, Somerset and Westmoreland apply for grant funds through the Pennsylvania Rural Arts Alliance.
