Cuyahoga Arts & Culture approves $1.65 million in ARPA grants

Cuyahoga Arts & Culture approved $1.65 million in COVID-19 relief funds for arts organizations at its board meeting on Wednesday. The money was approved by the Cuyahoga County Board earlier this year, and 149 groups made the cut. American Rescue Plan Act funding was for organizations in good standing that had received a CAC grant of at least $3,000 in the past three years.

Each grant awarded was for at least $2,000. The highest grants were $75,000 each, given to the Cleveland Orchestra, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Playhouse Square Foundation, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

These ARPA grants are in addition to other CCA grants supporting arts and culture organizations through revenue from a county cigarette tax. Ideastream Public Media receives such support from CAC.

Cigarette tax revenue continues to fall each year and figures shared at the board meeting show an 8.5% drop so far this year.

CAC reports that the organizations it works with saw their revenues drop by $171 million in the first 22 months of the pandemic.

ACE’s ARPA funding reflects an additional $1.65 million earmarked for the Assembly for the arts. These grants will go to individual artists and for-profit arts organizations. The application period runs until September 30.
