The Springfield Area Arts Council announces the opening of its fiscal year 2021 COMMUNITY ARTS ACCESS re-granting program.
Non-profit organizations in Sangamon and Menard counties are invited to apply for funding.
Guidelines and application materials will be available on the Arts Council website on November 9th and may be requested from Sheila Walk at 217-753-3519 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline is November 30th.
Community Arts Access grants are given in conjunction with the Illinois Arts Council Agency and the City of Springfield. The grants provide the opportunity for local arts agencies like the Springfield Area Arts Council to distribute state funds in their own service areas according to local needs. The program is designed to give the community more access to the arts, especially among under-served populations.
