We’re pleased to announce that the Roanoke City Council supported a consistent level of funding for arts and cultural programming at $336,500.
The Agency Funding Advisory Committee (AFAC) worked hard this spring reviewing applications for the coming year. They looked at past performance and the work of our partners. They considered funding scenarios. They met virtually with each other and potential grantees.
