Building on the excitement and momentum of arts engagement during Stafford’s 350th Anniversary and in an effort to contribute to the artistic quality of life for residents, Stafford County is administering an annual grant to county, non-profit Arts Organizations called the Local Government Challenge Grant (http://www.arts.virginia.gov/grants_local.html )
It is a matching grant that leverages County Tourism dollars with matching funds from the Virginia Commission for the Arts. Stafford County is collecting applications for the FY2016 VA Commission for the Arts Government Challenge Grant. Any interested 501©(3) Arts Organization that contributes to the arts in Stafford County should fill out the application and return it to Sue Henderson for consideration.
Email Ms. Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
All completed applications are due by COB March 6, 2015.
