FY18 Grantees - LiftOff Grant - Cycle 2

CAH’s LiftOff program supports professional development and capacity building of nonprofit organizations established in the arts or humanities with organizational budgets under $250,000. By working with an identified program participant (“Leader”) from applicant organizations, the LiftOff program will endeavor to incorporate perspectives of individuals from communities historically underrepresented in the agency’s past capacity building initiatives by developing an inclusive peer network across the District’s geographic areas.
