Now Online: Guidelines for 2012 Project Support Grant Program

Cleveland (April 18, 2011) - Guidelines for the 2012 Project Support (PS) Grant Program are now available for download at the link below.

The PS grant program is intended to support Cuyahoga County-based projects that promote public access and encourage the breadth of arts and/or cultural programming in our community.

PS grants are awarded annually; projects must take place between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012. Organizations must meet eligibility criteria as outlined in the PS Guidelines and verified through an “Intent to Apply” process.

NEW IN 2012: Within the Project Support grant program there are two options; Project Support I (offering grants up to $50,000 for nonprofits and $35,000 for units of government) and Project Support II (a small-grants pilot program that simplifies the application process for nonprofits seeking grants of $5,000 or less).

If you plan to apply for the 2012 cycle of PS grant funding:

  1. Download and carefully review the guidelines for the Project Support I and Project Support II grant programs. The guidelines provide a complete overview of the PS Grant Programs, including eligibility, application procedure, deadline dates, panel review process, funding criteria, and other important information.
  2. Be sure to sign up for regular updates about grant programs and other important information on the CAC home page, including details about upcoming workshops to assist applicants.
