The Facilities and Buildings (FAB) grant supports qualified non-profit arts, humanities, arts education, and arts or humanities service organizations that own or rent facilities, intend to own or rent facilities, or seek capital project support for permanent property, technology, equipment, or digital assets designed for the training, management, production, or presentation of performances or exhibitions of the arts or humanities. Grant award funds must be spent within CAH’s Fiscal Year 2023 (October 1, 2022 to September 30, 2023).

Grants are competitive and applications are reviewed in like-sized organizational budget cohorts. The number and amounts of grant awards are subject to CAH’s availability of funds and are
based upon the applicant’s advisory review panel score and ranking.

Organizations applying for a new facility purchase may apply for up to $500,000 in funds.

Organizations applying for other eligible projects may apply for up to $250,000 in funds.

By making its FAB grant awards, CAH endeavors to meet the following goals:

  • Preserve and strengthen structures, systems, and infrastructure for arts and humanities organizations, their constituents, and their collections;
  • Enable and ensure access to high-quality physical spaces and equipment for the District’s arts and humanities;
  • Reduce the risk of organizational displacement; and
  • Foster and promote arts and humanities access for all District residents
