City to receive federal funding for arts

The City of Columbia Office of Cultural Affairs will receive $150,000 in American Rescue Plan funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, according to a Thursday news release from the city.

With approval from city council, the funds will be made available to local arts nonprofits who will be able to apply for grant funding to help them recover from the impact of the pandemic.

The Office of Cultural Affairs plans to use the grant to supplement its Annual Arts Funding program, which provides funds for "project support" rather than operations costs, according to the release.
