The Georgia Council for the Arts (GCA), a division of the Georgia Department of Economic Development, awarded $300,000 in funding grants to 84 organizations in 64 counties across the state. Each of these Vibrant Communities grants will support arts programs that contribute in substantial ways to the local communities’ development.
Recipients of the grants were chosen from 123 applications submitted by libraries, schools, arts centers, cities, historical societies, Boys and Girls Clubs and community theatres. GCA appointed a peer review panel to determine which organizations received funding.
