Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts
The Bradford County Regional Arts Council (BCRAC) is proud to have been selected by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA) to facilitate the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) Program in the Northern Tier. PPA is a small grants program that allows regional partners throughout the state to work with the PCA to make a significant impact on arts and cultural opportunities at a local level. Funding for the PPA program comes from the citizens of Pennsylvania through an annual state appropriation by the Legislature and from a federal grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
PPA funds support arts and cultural activities occurring between September 1 - August 31 of each program year. Funds are available for projects within the BCRAC service area: Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga & Wyoming counties. Grant requests may not exceed $2,500.
For more information, grant writing questions/counseling or assistance please contact BCRAC's PPA Director Renae Chamberlain at 570-268-ARTS (2787) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
