FY 2018 Grants
Since its inception, LexArts has raised millions of dollars in support of the local arts through its annual Fund for the Arts. In turn, LexArts underwrites general operating expenses for a variety of arts organizations and offers competitive Community Arts Grants for arts projects and programs.
Awards are given annually and applications are reviewed each spring. See Eligibility and Criteria for Funding for more details about each of the grant categories.
