Awarding of grant checks is the final step in the grant application process, and possibly the most enjoyable one! For the 2017-18 Project Stream grant year a Grant Awards Ceremony was held on Tuesday October 24 at 7 PM at the Bottleworks Ethnic Arts Center, 411 Third Avenue in the Cambria City section of Johnstown. Grant recipients had a chance to mingle and get to know each other, to hear about each organization’s funded project, enjoy refreshments and look at the artwork on display. Jeanne Gleason, a member of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and a PRAA Board member helped to award grant checks.
For the 2017-18 year there were 42 grant applicants; of those a total of 39 received funding. This year there were 8 new organizations that applied.
