In addition to providing a local art gallery and arts programming for Allegany County, one of our most important functions is to serve as a funding source to local nonprofit organizations and individuals interested in the pursuit of arts-related activities in our community. Over the past few years, the Arts Council has awarded more than $100,000 in grants, and is now opening its application period for grants in 2019-2020.
