In the spring of 2023, a transformational $10 million investment of state American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding for Oklahoma's arts and cultural sector was overwhelmingly supported by the Oklahoma State Legislature and approved by the Governor. The proposal was submitted by the Oklahoma Arts Council in partnership with Allied Arts OKC and Arts Alliance Tulsa, designed to boost the rebuilding of the sector across all 77 counties while catapulting it forward as an asset for developing creative workforce and strengthening the economy. This fall, applications for grant funding made possible by this historic investment will be available to organizations across Oklahoma. During this session, a panel of representatives from the partnering organizations administering the grant awards will walk participants through the guidelines and requirements of the grant program. Organizations considering applying for funding are strongly encouraged to send staff and related personnel to this session. Time will be set aside for a Q&A. Participants will also be able to sign up for "office hours" to get further assistance.
