The Cultural Council today announced that it has recommended $212,500 in grants to 32 small or emerging organizations in Palm Beach County for fiscal year 2017-2018. These recommendations were approved by the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County’s board of directors at its most recent meeting, on January 23.
“These grants underscore the importance of supporting a diversity of art and culture programming focused on children’s education and cultural heritage in The Palm Beaches, consistent with our mission to nurture small or emerging arts organizations,” said Jan Rodusky, Chief Grants Officer of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.
Grant award amounts are based on the organizations’ budget size, grant application score and the funding available.

The Cultural Council manages this process on behalf of the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners, to promote and expand cultural activities for residents.
