The Vermont Arts Council has announced a deadline of May 1 for applications regarding its cultural facilities grant.
The award provides up $30,000 to aid nonprofit organizations in the state as well as municipalities looking to upgrade existing buildings. All applications for the grant must be submitted online at the VAC website, www.vermontartscouncil.org.
According to the VAC, the program awards grants to assist Vermont nonprofit organizations and municipalities in the enhancement, creation or expansion of the capacity of existing buildings to provide cultural activities for the public. Improvements such as wiring, heating, ADA accessibility features, lighting and stage work are all eligible.
The program is run through the VAC in partnership with the Vermont Historical Society and the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation.
The arts council will be holding free informational workshops Feb. 18 at Catamount Arts in St. Johnsbury, Feb. 19 at the Bethel Town Hall and March 5 at the Town Hall Theater in Middlebury for organizations interested in pursuing the grant. The council strongly recommends attendance of one of these sessions for those considering applying for the award. Each workshop will be held from 1 to 4 p.m.
