REDDING, Calif. - The coronavirus pandemic decimated so many industries across the country, including the arts.
The Shasta Arts Council is offering a grant for communities of color involved in arts and culture. This is made possible through Cares Act money from the California Arts Council.
This grant supports groups that didn’t qualify for other CARES grants. The Shasta Arts Council received almost $13,000 to distribute, depending on what an organization needs.
“We have decided to not set a maximum limit and see what the need is in the community,” said Agata Maruszewski, the Interim Executive Director of the Shasta Arts Council. “The amount that we have to re-grant is approximately $12,600. While it might seem like it's not a tremendous amount of money, it can definitely support and help towards finalizing a project.”
The Shasta Arts Council already received several applications.
The grant application will remain up until March 24.
