The West Virginia Division of Culture and History and the West Virginia Commission on the Arts are accepting applications from arts organizations and history museums, who are seeking additional funding via dollar-for-dollar match grants for up to $20,000.
Priority for this special funding will be given to energy-efficient projects, accessibility improvements and purchases needed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, renovations and repairs, and capital purchases that assist with programming.
Each application will be reviewed by members of the commission and individuals with expertise in the applicant areas before the commission awards the grants. The application deadline is February 1, 2012. The grant period will run from April 1 through September 20, 2012.
