In an effort to assist with job retention for members of Baltimore's cultural community, the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts (BOPA) are seeking applications for the new National Endowment for the Arts/Baltimore City Job Retention Grant.
Funded by a $250,000 award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and matched by Mayor Sheila Dixon and the Baltimore City Council, the grant program offers $5,000 to $25,000 to support full-time, part-time or contractual positions in the arts.
Non-profit 501(c)3 cultural organizations serving the Baltimore City community that have not received economic stimulus awards through the Maryland State Arts Council, the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation or directly through the NEA are eligible to apply.
Applications or the grants are available at the BOPAwebsite. The deadline for applications is Friday, September 25, 2009.
