Art project grants

December 18, 2014

This year, the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) has awarded over $600,000 in project grants for 146 projects and programs in the tri-county region!

The Project Grant Program provides financial support to non-profits, school, and artists.  Grants are up to $6,000 and awarded in three categories: Community Participation, Arts-In-Schools, and Artistic Focus. 

Nearly half of the grant applications received were awarded full or partial funding. 65 grants went to nonprofits and schools, and 80 went to individual local artists. 

Nick is proud to serve as City Council liaison to RACC – the City of Portland is RACC’s largest funding source. 

RACC is committed to funding diverse and accessible art programs that reach all people in our community.

Check out RACC’s website for a complete list of funded projects.
