Operating Support Grants
The Arts and Education Council (A&E) believes that a region rich with arts and cultural experiences is critical to creating and sustaining vibrant communities. By investing in a wide variety of art forms and organizations, A&E creates an environment where the growing impact and ripple effect of the arts is felt and celebrated by the entire community.
A&E's Operating Support Grant program provides ongoing, unrestricted support to arts organizations whose programming supports the goal of A&E to drive community impact by promoting the Elements of a Vibrant Community.
