PA Partners in the Arts

The Cultural Alliance is the newest Pa Partner in the Arts - administering grant money for the PA Council on the Arts. With $22,500 to re-grant for the state, the Alliance was responsible for reaching 4 counties - York, Adams, Franklin, and Fulton Counties.

We met in Gettysburg in August with 7 allocation panel members from the 4 counties. We read and discussed 22 grant applications and scored them all. It was so exciting to bring grant funds to all the counties but especially YORK.

Anyway, below is a list of the grantees and their projects. They receive their money on October 24 at the Majestic Theatre in Gettysburg. We have invited all the legislators to come and see where the money was spent.

The grants will again be due in mid-June 2012. Please visit the PA Council on the Arts web site to apply on line.
