If you are an organization whose goal is centered around the arts, then a local agency hopes you will consider applying for grant money they are offering.
Jerry Johnson is the Executive Director of the Decatur Arts Council and indicates the grants are available thanks to dollars they receive from the State of Illinois.
Johnson notes Maroa-Forsyth Schools were among the most recent beneficiaries of their grant.
For details about the grant and the guidelines, visit the Decatur Area Arts Council website at decaturarts.org/grants. The upcoming deadline for this round of grant funding is February 1. Johnson points out they do grant cycles again later in the spring and then again in the fall.
