ArtsBuild is accepting requests for the 2013-14 the Community Cultural Connections grant program that supports arts and cultural projects for underserved populations in Hamilton County. Now in its second year, Community Cultural Connections is a direct result of Imagine Chattanooga 20/20, the community-wide cultural plan that created strategies to improve the greater Chattanooga area through arts and culture.
Funding for the 2013/2014 Community Cultural Connections grants is provided by Hamilton County Commissioner Tim Boyd and the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee Community Trust.
The deadline for CCC grant proposal requests is Nov. 22. Organizations are not required to have 501(c)(3) status to apply. ArtsBuild will host two grant workshops for those interested in applying: October 21 at 5 p.m. at Chattanooga City Hall in the Veranda Room, third floor and Oct. 30, at 9 a.m. at ArtsBuild, 406 Frazier Ave.
The Community Cultural Connections grant guidelines and application are currently available on ArtsBuild's website. Additional information is available by contacting Rodney Van Valkenburg, Director of Grants and Initiatives, 423 756-2787 or Rodney@ArtsBuild.com
