City of Milwaukee: Applications still being accepted for Sustaining Grant Program and Public Art Conservation Fund

Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs, chair of the Milwaukee Arts Board, wants to remind the community that applications are still being accepted for both the Sustaining Grant Program and the Public Art Conservation Fund.  

The Sustaining Grant Program provides funding to arts-based organizations for programming, administrative, and/or facilities costs. The grant program is open to eligible nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations located in the city of Milwaukee. Applications for the grant program are due by close of business on Monday, March 13.   

The Public Art Conservation Fund provides funding for non-profit organizations to administer public art conservation efforts throughout Milwaukee in strengthening neighborhoods and preserving the city’s rich cultural history. To qualify, projects must be fully accessible to the public. Applications are considered on a rolling basis as long as funds remain.

“As a city it is crucial that we uplift our local artists and our arts-based organizations to create public works that benefit our residents and represent our community,” said Alderwoman Coggs. “I would encourage those interested to take full advantage of these funding opportunities, particularly the Sustaining Grant Program which has a fast approaching deadline.”
