[ARCHIVED] Local Arts Grant Applications are available for 2016

The Westmoreland County Bureau of Parks and Recreation is offering grants to non-profit organizations to support art related projects and activities that will benefit Westmoreland County residents. These awards are designed to support and encourage arts programming in Westmoreland County. Nine thousand ($9,000) dollars are available for grants in 2016. This grant program has been made possible by the Westmoreland County Commissioners.

Applications for funding are available through the Westmoreland County Bureau of Parks and Recreation. Local non-profit arts organizations and governmental units involved in the production or display of arts activities are eligible to apply. Eligible arts activities include projects involving music, theater, dance, and other performing and visual arts.

A qualified, independent review board will evaluate all applications received by Tuesday, March 15, 2016. Up to 60% project funding is available only for direct costs of proposed projects, and not for general administration, capital expenses or in-kind costs. Projects that are not open to the general public, take place outside Westmoreland County, have a religious purpose, or serve as vehicles for prizes, fund raising, or academic credit are also not eligible for funding.

These grant funds are available for projects taking place from May 15 to September 30, 2016, and all applicants will be notified of grant awards by May 6, 2016. The application is available online in PDF format (click the link below) or call (724) 830-3962 if you would like an application mailed.
