COVID-19 Arts Grants
24 grants were awarded on December 22, 2020, totaling $300,000
Arts DuPage, a DuPage Foundation initiative, played a key role in accessing and distributing funding to local arts organizations. In response to an intensive appeal to the DuPage County Board, the Arts DuPage initiative was awarded $300,000 from the DuPage County CARES Act Funds to distribute grants to DuPage arts organizations. These grants provide much needed funds for the operational expenses they have incurred during a time when their income streams have been extremely limited.
