$25 Million in Arts Grants Awarded

372

The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) recently awarded $24,738,534 in competitive grants to support arts and humanities projects, nonprofit organizations and individual practitioners across the District. This marks the largest annual issuance of grant funds in the agency’s 51-year history. CAH awards grants through a competitive process. Applications from individuals and organizations are reviewed by independent panels that then make award recommendations to the CAH board of commissioners for final approval. Those applicants not receiving funding are offered technical assistance to support future applications. A complete listing of FY 2020 grantees is available at dcarts.dc.gov.
