Our office recently launched the “40th Ward Arts & Access Grants” as part of Chicago’s ward microgrant program. Passed during last year’s budget process, the program allocates $100,000 for each ward office to fund projects focused on enhancing local communities. Our ward is the first in the city to launch the microgrant initiative, which is open and accepting proposals from any non-profit or for-profit organization in two major categories:
Open Government (OG) Grants – $80,000 to be awarded in total
Lincoln Avenue North Arts (LANA) & Cultural Programming Grant – $20,000 to be awarded in total
Our office is ready to discuss the process in case you need any further help. If you have any questions or would like assistance with the application process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
