The Huntington Arts Council Announces
2010 JPMorgan Chase Organization/Stabilization and
Artist Reach Out Grant Recipients
The Huntington Arts Council is proud to announce the awardees for the 2010 JPMorgan Chase Artist Reach Out and Organization/Stabilization Regrant programs, which provide financial support to individual artists and arts and cultural organizations through a competitive grant review process. Last month, a panel of arts professionals from Nassau and Suffolk Counties met with representatives from JPMorgan Chase and the Huntington Arts Council to review 40 applications. Under the terms of the grant, 22 applicants were selected and approved by the Executive Committee last week for a total of $34,845 in funding.
The Artist Reach Out Grant provides opportunities for individual artists of all disciplines to receive $2000 for the creation of projects, programs and events that support community involvement as part of the art-making process. Community participation and artistic quality are essential to this grant program.
The Organization/Stabilization Regrant, made possible through the JPMorgan Chase Regrant Program, provides grant awards of up to $3,000 to small and mid-sized arts organizations within Nassau and Suffolk Counties. This program supports projects, services and capital expenditures that focus on strategic planning, organizational development and capacity building for organizations with a history of at least three years as a 501(c)3 organization.
