FY2022 Community Arts Grant Awards Announced

This year, the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County will award $500,000 to 43 organizations through the Community Arts Grant (CAG) program. These grants are critical to the local arts community because they provide general operating income that helps to support the day-to-day overhead of these organizations. Unlike most grants, which are project-based, this program promotes organizational sustainability by funding basic costs such as rent, staffing, and utilities.

Providing this support to our arts community is especially important now, as we recover from the pandemic. The arts are an important economic driver in Anne Arundel County, and these grant recipients have a significant impact on the local economy. Collectively, their budgets total $16.5 million, and together they support 2,137 full and part-time jobs.

For 23 years the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County (ACAAC) has supported arts organizations in Anne Arundel County through grantmaking. In addition to Community Arts Grants, the ACAAC also offers Mini Grant, Strategic Grant, Cultural Resource Grant, and Arts in Education Grant programs.
