Burlington County Freeholder Linda Hughes announced today that a cross-section of local non-profit arts organizations and non-profit groups that showcase the arts have been awarded $42,000 in grant funding by the Burlington County Freeholders.
“These grants are part of a $84,076 grant from the N.J. State Council on the Arts,” said Freeholder Hughes. “The remaining portion supports other wonderful county art projects for our residents such as art exhibits, Teen Arts, and Arts in the Park.”
This year’s grants were awarded to 10 organizations on the recommendations of a “peer panel,” or experts from the arts that evaluated applications. The grants are given in accordance with funding guidelines handed down by the State.
“These awards provide support to local organizations housed here in Burlington County that help promote interest in arts programs,” Hughes added. “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to expose residents to the arts, provide creative avenues for self-expression, and deepen connections to their communities and cultures.”
