The Cultural Arts Grant Programs provide support for organizations providing arts and cultural experiences to the Hillsboro community. This year, the HACC awarded 18 grants totaling $50,000 to 16 different organizations. HACC grants provide much needed funds for arts programs, capacity-building, and core operating support. According to Melissa Moore, the Community Arts Program Supervisor, “with these funds, groups pay local actors or musicians, buy costumes or instruments, and provide art education to youth in the community. These dollars make a difference.”
Grant eligibility varies by grant program, but all grants offered to share the goals of: supporting arts and cultural organizations serving Hillsboro and providing access to programs and fostering a diverse, inclusive and equitable community.
