The grant program is designed to preserve cultural heritages and traditions through the arts, significantly advance cultural opportunities for children and youth, and to create opportunities for Palm Beach County residents to experience culturally diverse, innovative and excellent cultural programs and projects. Small organizations that are stable are encouraged to apply as well as emerging organizations that have the potential to grow into future mid-sized organizations.
