The purpose of Sustaining Impact Grants is to provide mission-based operating support to Greater Louisville nonprofit arts organizations in order to ensure the organization’s ongoing capacity to drive community impact.
The Fund for the Arts recognizes that arts organizations continue to operate under extreme uncertainties, with many unknown variables because of COVID-19. Additionally, the Fund for the Arts recognizes the community’s call for racial equity and is committed to building a more inclusive and equitable community for all as one of our core pillars. In the grant year 2022-2023 Sustaining Impact Grant application, the scoring includes the applicants’ plans to recover from COVID-19 and commitment to rebuilding a thriving, inclusive, and equitable community for all.
