Greater Inclusion Grant OPPORTUNITY

The Lehigh Valley Arts Council offers small matching grants to cultural organizations to support their efforts to produce or present a first-time disability-friendly event. For funding support, nonprofits may apply to ONE of the following:

  1. A matching grant up to $500 to contract an artist with a disability to perform, exhibit, design or produce a public art event.
  2. A matching grant of up to $300 to accommodate an otherwise underserved segment of the community with disabilities, including but not limited to, individuals with hearing and visual loss, autism, mental health illness, or physical limitations.

The Greater Inclusion Grant is designed to help fund a new initiative that meets the following criteria:

  • The event must occur in 2018; one application per calendar year.
  • Applications must commit to providing customer service training to box office staff and volunteers (local agencies offer this training free-of-charge).
  • The event should reflect the Arts & Access mission and goals.
  • The award recipient is required to submit an evaluation of the event, including number of attendees with disabilities, plus families and friends.
