On Thursday, May 23, 2013, Mayor Vincent C. Gray will join the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) in hosting its annual Grants Kickoff at the Historic Lincoln Theatre. At the event, the DCCAH will present funding opportunities for District of Columbia artists and arts organizations as well as to introduce a new online grant application portal, enabling them to develop their grants applications with first-hand knowledge of changes for the upcoming fiscal year.
This is the third year that the DCCAH has hosted its Grants Kickoff. The event attracts hundreds from the local arts community whose programming and projects will enliven the city over the next year.
“We look forward to rolling out our grants for FY 2014 and providing needed support to the community,” said Lionell Thomas, Executive Director of the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities. “Through our grant programs, the arts community continues to make a significant impact on the city in FY 2013.”
