Groundswell recently received good news from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs: we were awarded a Program I grant for 2010!
The grant “encourages the attainment of artistic excellence and financial stability through general operating support for arts organizations,” according to the Department of Cultural Affairs.
Applicants were judged based on artistic and social merit, organizational development, fiscal accountability and application quality. Organizations awarded grants are eligible to receive future grants for two consecutive years before the application process opens up again.
