The Flagstaff Arts Council, which allocates grant funding and manages the year-round grant program, has announced recipients of the 2018-19 Art & Science Fund grant program. The Board of Directors of the Arts Council met in June to ratify the recommendations of a citizen review panel, providing funds to non-profit organizations in support of art, culture and science programs that serve residents of and visitors to Flagstaff, Arizona. Art & Science Fund grants are funded entirely through a portion of the City of Flagstaff’s Bed, Board and Beverage (BBB) Revenues.
Thirty-nine non-profit organizations will receive funding totaling $356,000. General Operating Support (GOS) grants were provided to 29 non-profit arts, culture and/or science organizations that provide direct services to residents of and visitors to Flagstaff, Arizona. Eight grants for Project Support were provided to other non-profit organizations that produce arts, culture and/or science programs that provide a direct public benefit to the community. This year, we introduced a new category: Professional Development. Five such grants were awarded in September. Funding supports public programs occurring between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019.
