March 17 Deadline Set for Purcellville Arts Grants

Area arts organizations are invited to submit requests for funding to the Purcellville Arts Council by March 17. The council expects to have $10,000 available to support arts activities that take place in Purcellville between July 1 and June 30, 2018.

The town will apply for $5,000 of state funding through the Virginia Commission for the Arts’ Local Government Challenge Grant Program, and match that number in local funds.

Interested arts organizations should submit a request letter to the Purcellville Arts Council, outlining the amount requested, the arts activity that the funding will support and the audience that will be served, along with a description of the organization.    Letters are due by 5 p.m. Friday, March 17 and should be addressed to the Purcellville Arts Council, Attn: Local Government Challenge Grant, and can be mailed to Town Hall, 221 S. Nursery Ave, Purcellville, VA 20132, emailed to hsalah@purcellvilleva.gov or dropped off at Town Hall.

The Arts Council will review the funding requests and then make recommendations to Town Council at its March 28 meeting.
