With Budget in Place, OAC’s FY 2018 Grant Funding Begins

On July 19, the OAC board met to approve more than $12 million through 635 grants awarded to artists and arts organizations throughout Ohio to kick off the OAC’s FY 2018 funding. Our state funding comes in addition to the more than $1.2 million awarded to Ohio recipients last month by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). Both sources of financial support contribute to the innovative, engaging, and educational projects and initiatives that are being developed and shared in all of Ohio’s 88 counties.
