TAVARES — The Lake County Cultural Affairs Council is accepting the second round of grant applications this year beginning April 15.
The Council will be awarding small grants not exceeding $1,000 to local art or cultural programs on a competitive basis. The deadline for grant-application submittal is May 30. Grant recipients will be announced at the Council’s annual meeting in September.
As the designated local arts agency in Lake County, the Cultural Affairs Council receives funds for the grant program from the sale of the “State of the Arts” vehicle license plates in Lake County. Recent recipients of the grants include Performing Arts of Lake and Sumter counties, Mount Dora Festival of Music & Literature, East Ridge High School Theatre Thespians, Leesburg Public Library and Lake Eustis Museum of Art.
Applications can be mailed to the Lake County Cultural Affairs Council in the office of the Department of Economic Development and Tourism, 20763 U.S. Highway 27, Groveland, Fla., 34736. Late applications will not be considered and faxed copies will not be accepted.
Grants are not available to individuals. Organizations eligible for funding (including not-for-profit arts organizations, local governments and schools) must be based in Lake County.
The Cultural Arts Council will determine funding, based on their evaluation of the merits of all proposals submitted. The Council reserves the right to reject any proposals reviewed. Grant applicants will be notified of the Council decision in writing.
