DCEA offering grants

GREENVILLE — Darke County Endowment for the Arts annually grants funds to local organizations, individuals and governmental units which apply for funds to further the arts in our community; the deadline for applications to be considered for funding is Friday, Apr. 30.

To be eligible to receive funding, an applicant must be located in or provide services in Darke County, Ohio. In the past, applicants who have been awarded grants used the funds to assist presentation of art exhibits, musical programs, or dance projects, and to provide special opportunities for arts education. Other projects appropriate for consideration may include innovative plans and programs that increase the quality and stature of the arts, that increase accessibility to the arts for more residents, that enable collaboration between arts groups, that provide recognition of exceptional artistic achievements, and that provide for the maintenance and development of art facilities.

Application forms may be obtained from Darke County Endowment for the Arts, Inc. at www.SupportDCEA.org, as well as by stopping by the front desk at Greenville Public Library, 520 Sycamore Street, or by sending your request to Darke County Endowment for the Arts, P.O.
