Grants are available to support nonprofit organizations that provide arts and culture programs in Cuyahoga County. The purpose of these grants is to support projects that promote public access to, and encourage the breadth of, arts and/or cultural programming in Cuyahoga County. Funding may be used either for (a) general operating support (for organizations with a primary purpose of providing arts or cultural services for the public), or for (b) project support (for organizations that provide arts or cultural programs or activities for the public). There are currently two different funding opportunities:

Project Support I grants for up to $50,000 for nonprofit organizations, or up to $35,000 for units of government. There is a 1:1 cash match required for PS I grants and all eligible applicants are required to complete a data profile in the Ohio Cultural Data Project at www.ohculturaldata.org. This is a powerful management tool for arts and cultural organizations, that will, at no cost, allow arts managers and artistic leaders to understand and analyze their organization’s financial performance and situation easily and intuitively. Project Support II grants for up to $5,000 for nonprofit organizations only. 25% of the 1:1 match can come from in‐kind services and there is no OCDP requirement.

Priority for funding will be given based on the following criteria:
(1) Public Benefit:
* Clear evidence of community involvement in the planning of the project
* Applicant clearly explains why the project warrants public support
* Applicant collaborates with other organizations and/or stakeholders to broaden community impact
(2) Artistic or Cultural Quality of Project
(3) Organizational Capacity:
* Clear demonstration of the applicant’s capacity to plan for and manage the project, as well as a clear budget
* Realistic and measurable project goals and objectives, including a plan to evaluate the project’s success

January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012

To be eligible, organizations must:
(A) Have a “permanent and viable base of operations” in Cuyahoga County for at least two years prior to
the Intent to Apply deadline.
(B) Have produced or presented arts and cultural program(s) open to the public within the previous two
years prior to the Intent to Apply deadline.
(C) Provide the required financial documentation as outlined in the Intent to Apply.

Proposed projects must be open to the general public and conducted in Cuyahoga County to be eligible for grant funding. Also, organizations may only apply for one type of Project Support per funding cycle and the project must be directly concerned with the arts or cultural heritage.

For PS I, units of government may be eligible to apply if they make cooperative arrangements in support of government‐sponsored arts and cultural projects that meet the same qualitative criteria as apply to projects presented by private, nonprofit arts and cultural organizations. To be eligible, a unit of government must:
(A) Have a “permanent and viable base of operations” in Cuyahoga County for at minimum two years prior
to the Intent to Apply deadline.
(B) Have produced or presented arts and cultural program(s) open to the public within the previous two
years prior to the Intent to Apply deadline.
(C) Provide the required financial documentation as outlined in the Intent to Apply form.

Note: There are limited funds available for units of government.

CAC will hold informational workshops to review the PS application and submission process. Workshop dates,
locations and registration information will be posted on the CAC website in advance.

All organizations must complete the online Intent to Apply by July 29, 2011 at 4:30 PM. The purpose of the Intent to Apply process is to allow the staff to determine whether your organization is eligible to apply for funding through the PS grant program and to determine the quantity and diversity of potential applications by discipline in order to inform the selection of review panelists.

Organizations that do not submit the Intent to Apply will not be permitted to submit a final Grant
Application and will not be eligible for funding. However, submitting the Intent to Apply does not
automatically make your organization eligible to apply for funding. The committee will notify you regarding your organization’s eligibility status. If your organization is eligible, the staff will provide you with a password and further instructions for completing the online grant application. If your organization is not eligible you will not be permitted to submit a grant application.
