Cuyahoga Arts & Culture's grant programs are the means by which it supports arts and culture in Cuyahoga County. Funding for CAC's grant programs is generated by and solely based on the revenues from a public tax. CAC's grants are available to nonprofit organizations located in Cuyahoga County and incorporated in the State of Ohio.
All of CAC's grants are made using an independent Panel of arts and cultural experts from outside of Ohio. The Panel reviews and scores every eligible application based on the published grant program criteria, resulting in a funding recommendation presented by CAC staff to the CAC Board of Trustees.
In 2012, arts and culture organizations funded by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture offered programs in nearly 2,000 unique locations in Cuyahoga County – parks, theaters, concert halls, schools, community centers and many more.
