The Fund will address the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 on the cultural sector – critical to the tourism and economic engine of Palm Beach County. The fund will be accessible for previously funded 501(c)3 Palm Beach County organizations and provide rapid funding to cultural organizations.
With the support of the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners, Tourist Development Council, and County Administrator Verdenia Baker, this new grant program will allow the Council to distribute CARES Act funds to cultural organizations in need of financial assistance.
Funding can support costs for finding new safe spaces for performance and rehearsal, adapting existing facilities to comply with public health standards, developing new capacities in streaming and virtual engagement (including ways to support online learning for children and families), addressing issues of equitable access on digital programs, retraining staff, other costs associated with physically-distanced program delivery, and covering costs incurred for cancelled or postponed performances and events.
