Grants Support Arts, Humanities and Cultural Organizations Serving County Residents

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski announced today that applications are now open for Fiscal Year 2022 Operating Grants to support not-for-profit organizations that offer visual and performing arts, science and humanities programs.

Organizations both in and near Baltimore County may apply for grants, as long as they serve Baltimore County’s residents.

“Baltimore County arts and cultural assets enrich our lives, support our economy, and improve quality of life in our communities,” said Olszewski. “We’re proud to provide these grants to better connect our residents with diverse arts and cultural opportunities here in Baltimore County and throughout our region.”

Application and Informational Workshops

The Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences operating grant applications are available on the County website and the deadline for applying is Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 4 p.m.

Grants are awarded based on artistic and educational merit, service to Baltimore County, the region and community, impact on diverse cultural needs of the community, management effectiveness, financial stability, and the extent of outreach to involve new audiences, special constituencies and underserved populations. It is the Commission’s policy not to be the sole source of funding for any grantee.

The Commission is hosting informational workshops for potential applicants via Webex on September 17 and September 29 at 3:30 p.m.

Those interested in participating in a workshop must email Arts and Sciences Coordinator, Helene Luce at, at least 24 hours ahead of the session to receive the Webex link information.
