Grants of up to $5,000 to Allegany County, Maryland nonprofits and individual artists for local programs and projects in the arts. Examples of possible projects include art walks, open air performances, pop-up events and galleries, murals and other public art, artistic relocation and residency programs, outdoor workshops, children's programming, and festivals. Funded projects and programs must be open to the general public and take place within the county.

The Allegany Arts Council Placemaking Grants are designed to assist the community in making Allegany County, and specifically its two Arts and Entertainment Districts in Cumberland and Frostburg, look and feel like arts destinations.

One of the most important components of placemaking is community involvement and partnerships.

In contrast to General Operating Grants, a Placemaking Grant is for a specific project or program that addressed placemaking.
