Grant Opportunities // Erie Arts & Culture

Erie Arts & Culture distributes more than $300,000 in grants to individual artists and not-for-profit organizations located throughout Northwestern Pennsylvania each year. Grants are designed to support a variety of arts and cultural activities to help strengthen the vibrancy and vitality of the Erie region as well as enrich the lives of our residents and visitors.

Funds for our grants are made possible through revenue from the Erie Arts Endowment, Erie County’s annual Arts & Culture Campaign, as well as grants from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Partners in the Arts (PPA) re-grant program. Eligibility and application requirements for grants through Erie Arts & Culture vary from program to program. We encourage those wanting to learn more about these grant opportunities to contact Melinda Meyer, Program Director, by email at melinda@erieartsandculture.org or by phone at 814-452-3427.
