Kentucky Arts Council offers operational support grants to arts and cultural organizations
FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky nonprofit arts and cultural organizations that provide year-round arts programming may apply to the Kentucky Arts Council for Kentucky Arts Partnership grant funding by Jan. 15, 2012. Grants to qualified organizations will support operating costs for the period between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013.
“This operational support to organizations provides economic and education benefits to Kentuckians in all regions of the state,” said Kentucky Arts Council Executive Director Lori Meadows. “With funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Kentucky General Assembly, we were able to award funding to 100 Kentucky arts organizations in the last grant cycle.”
Grant awards are based on the amount of funds available to the Kentucky Arts Council, the number of applicants, applicants’ scores as determined by an independent review panel based on prescribed performance expectations, and the organization’s operating revenue.

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, creates opportunities for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts.
