This $10,000 grant, facilitated by CACHE, supports the 2020-2022 ARt Connect organizations to execute an organizational development project. Your project should be in response to what you've learned so far in this program, and should position your organization to grow in at least one of the three ARt Connect Areas of Focus:

1. Governance

2. Finance

3. Community Engagement

NOTE: If your grant project focuses on/builds skills and ideas that we haven’t specifically covered in past ARt Connect sessions, please work closely with Angela to develop and finalize your grant project proposal. Also, please be aware that the scope and cost of proposed grant projects do not need to be restricted by the ARt Connect grant amount requested if other supplemental funding sources are available. Applicants must communicate this in their application.
