PA Partners in the Arts

The Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) Project Stream grants provide opportunities for arts organizations, individual artists and community-based groups to apply for up to $2,500 in funding to support performances, exhibitions and other arts projects that are presented to the public and take place between a designated time period. The Cultural Alliance supports the program in Adams, Fulton, Franklin, and York Counties.

These grants are administered by the Cultural Alliance of York County, but are funded by the taxpayers of the Commonwealth through the PA Council on the Arts.  These grants expand CAYC’s mission to support the creative community.
