The City of Cincinnati is seeking applicants for its competitive Capital Arts Grant Program (CAP).
The CAP was created to assist arts and cultural organizations in implementing projects that build and maintain the economic viability of the city's neighborhoods.
The program provides funding assistance to non-profit artistic and cultural organizations for capital improvement projects that are designed to construct, expand, renovate or equip cultural arts facilities throughout the city.
Approximately $300,000 has been approved for 2008, with a maximum award of $50,000.
Applicants are required to furnish a 1-to-1 dollar match from non-city sources to be eligible.
"These capital improvement grants certainly add to the vibrancy and energy that the arts and cultural community bring to the City," says Katrina Gragston, the Capital Arts Grant Program administrator with Cincinnati's Department of Community Development. "We encourage all Cincinnati arts and cultural organizations to apply to the Capital Arts Grant Program."
The application deadline is August 15.
Applications and program guidelines are available at the Department of Community Development website
or at their office at 805 Central Avenue, Suite 700.
