Arts Quincy awarded $10,000 Challenge America grant from National Endowment for the Arts

Arts Quincy

Arts Quincy is among the Challenge America winners from the National Endowment for the Arts for 2021. A grant of $10,000 has been awarded to increase Community Arts Access programming. This is the second time Arts Quincy has received this honor.

The Challenge America grant supports small organizations for projects in all artistic disciplines that extend the reach of the arts to underserved populations. These populations are limited to experiencing the arts because of geography, ethnicity, economics or disability.  Challenge America grants support two major outcomes: public engagement with diverse and excellent art and livability, or the strengthening of communities through the arts.

“We’re thrilled to receive this grant that will further our mission to increase free and accessible arts activities to residents of our rural area,” said Laura Sievert, executive director of Arts Quincy. “We hope individuals will join Quincy’s fine arts community and see what it has to offer. Increasing access to quality arts and culture programming is among Arts Quincy’s most important functions.”
