The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance announced the distribution of $19,157 in Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA) Project Stream grants in Montgomery County earlier this month.

Project Stream grants provide funding to individual artists and organizations that offer innovative, community-based arts projects in southeastern Pennsylvania. The Project Steam grants are made possible through the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts’ (PCA) Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts program. The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance distributed $95,412 to 80 arts groups across five counties in the Philadelphia region.

“The Cultural Alliance is proud to be the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts’ largest regional re-grantor,” said Maud Lyon, Cultural Alliance president. “Project Stream enables the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts to reach a wider audience by increasing access to funds for organizations and artists across the state, thereby increasing statewide audience exposure to cultural activities.”

Project Stream provides grants of up to $2,500 to any eligible group or individual artists running arts projects in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. 15 artists and nonprofit organizations from Montgomery County received funding this year. The average award was $1,277.

“The arts and culture sector makes Philadelphia a world-class city, and makes our region one of the most exciting creative destinations in the country. We work on behalf of that sector. We believe in the power of arts and culture.” – Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance.
