Erie County Legislator Chris Greene announces that Erie County is seeking applicants for the Cultural Capital Grant Program. The Erie County Capital Projects Committee will be accepting applications until July 11th, 2022 for the new $25 million program that will help strengthen cultural organizations throughout Erie County.
Legislator Greene said, “The pandemic was difficult for everyone, including our cultural organizations. This grant will help them complete capital improvement projects that may have been put on the backburner due to COVID-19 or that just have needed to get done. I encourage every cultural group in my district to submit an application for your chance to improve your organization.”
The program will run for multiple years and registration for 2022 is currently open. An informational WebEx meeting will be held on June 22nd from 5:30pm-6:30pm for anyone seeking additional information regarding the program.
