On December 2, 2021, the Indiana Arts Commission announced it has distributed American Rescue Plan Act funds to 17 nonprofit organizations totaling $61,000.
Funds were provided by the Indiana Arts Commission’s regional arts organizational partner, Arts Midwest, utilizing American Rescue Plan funds.
“Across our state, communities are looking to the creative sector to address challenges presented by COVID-19,” said Indiana Arts Commission Executive Director Miah Michaelsen. “This funding will support these 17 unique places as they leverage the arts to strengthen their communities and, in the process, contribute to Indiana’s economic recovery and future growth.”
Funds will support salaries; fees and stipends for artists; facilities and operational costs; health and safety supplies for staff and participants; and marketing and promotion expenses.
Grants were distributed through the agency’s Creative Community Pathway program. The Creative Community Pathway program provides a roadmap for Indiana communities to start, focus, or deepen arts and culture-based strategies to grow community wellbeing.
