ArtsCouncilLogo2Color.jpgThe Kentucky Arts Council has awarded more than $1.7 million in operational support funding to 104 nonprofit arts and cultural organizations for fiscal year 2013, through the Kentucky Arts Partnership (KAP) grant, the agency announced today.  The KAP grant provides support to nonprofit organizations offering year-round arts services and programs directly for the benefit of the public. The competitive grant process funds applicants based on operating revenues, a panel review of applications, and funds available for the program.

kyarts3.jpg“KAP organizations from small to large work tirelessly to provide diverse cultural experiences and participation in the arts for Kentuckians who live in their immediate regions and across the state,” said Lori Meadows, executive director of the arts council. “Providing support to help these groups is one of the main functions of the arts council. We remain grateful to the Kentucky General Assembly for their continued support of the arts.”

KAP agencies vary in size and are located in rural, suburban and urban communities. In fiscal year 2012, the arts council provided 100 agencies with KAP funding.

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, creates opportunities for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts.
