PAWTUCKET – The Department of Planning and Redevelopment has announced that grant applications are now available for organizational support funding for Pawtucket-based Non-Profit Arts Organizations.

“Our artist community brings such value to our City,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “These grants will provide more access to performances and exhibitions around the City.”

Programming may include performances, art exhibitions, music and other ongoing art activities at a Pawtucket venue.
