Each year ArtsErie distributes thousands of dollars in grants to artists and member organizations throughout the region.
These grants take the form of ArtsErie grants, which are made possible through the Erie Arts Endowment and the Combined Arts & Culture Campaign, as well as grants from a state program known as the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA). Eligibility and application requirements vary. Each year, ArtsErie provides free workshops to educate potential applicants about funding opportunities and to answer questions about the process.
Current grant opportunities include:
- Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts Project Stream (PPA Project) - deadline June 28, 2013
- ArtsErie Project (Erie County only) - deadline October 2, 2013.
