Charles County, MD —  If your nonprofit organization or school provides art activities in Charles County, the Charles County Arts Alliance might help you out with a cash grant.

Over the past 35 years, the organization has given out over $800,000 in support of art programs. This year, they’re inviting local arts organizations to apply for up to $10,000 in grant money.

CCAA Arts Grant Program offers two types of grants: Community Arts Development (CAD) grants for nonprofit organizations, and Arts in Education (AIE) grants for schools. The CAD grants have two sub-categories: General Operating grants for arts organizations, and Special Project grants for non-profit organizations that present activities in the performing, visual and literary arts.

The grants will be awarded at the CCAA Annual Gala in November.

Applications are available at their website, or pick up a hard copy at the CCAA Office.

Grant applications must be in the possession of the CCAA Office no later than 12:00 noon on Friday, October 4, 2019. AIE grant applications (for schools) will be available in early September and will be posted on the website.
