» Congratulations to our 2023-24 Organizational 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 for FY 2023-24.

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. Thank you, William Penn (Chair), Betsy Whitney, Catherine Koebel-Stromberg, and Helen Dean.
