» Congratulations to our 2021-22 Grantees

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.

Want to learn more about how arts and culture funding works in Roanoke?

Stay tuned for lots of announcements when organizations begin drawing down the resources this month. They are busy developing programming for the 21-22 season. Let’s have a great year building back audiences, experiences, and Roanoke’s strong cultural vibe.
