advertisementGrass Valley, CA, January 12, 2020 – As the State-Local Partner with California Arts Council in Nevada County, Nevada County Arts Council has announced the re-granting of $12,600 among six cultural organizations serving communities of color disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
In response to the COVID-19 public health crisis, the National Endowment for the Arts awarded 40% of its CARES appropriation directly to state and regional arts agencies.
California Arts Council distributed its share of funding to those among its State Local-Partners (SLPs) who elected to opt in.
Tudor says, “Naturally, we opted in, calling this opportunity Nevada County CARES for the Arts.
As well as its first priority of supporting Nevada County’s creative sector, Nevada County Arts Council has also been providing peer support and mentoring for Sierra County Art Council in the administering of its own grantmaking process.
