Georgia Family Connection Partnership (GaFCP), in response to last week’s historic flood and the subsequent federal disaster declarations in this region, has extended the Grassroots Arts Program (GAP) application deadline to Nov. 1, 2009. This 30-day extension provides applicants with the necessary time to assist in flood recovery efforts and still have the opportunity to submit a quality GAP proposal.

Grassroots Arts Programs create new opportunities for underserved audiences to experience the arts, while fostering greater awareness and developing local partnerships in the arts. GAP also aims to have a positive impact on overall community development. Funding is open to any nonprofit organization or unit of local government in Carroll, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Haralson, Heard, Meriwether, Paulding, Pike, Troup, and Upson counties. The maximum award is $1,500 and applicants must provide 50 percent of the grant award as a cash match.

The Grassroots Arts Program is funded by the Georgia Council for the Arts through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly to ensure all Georgians have access to the arts activities which enrich our lives. This statewide arts program is designed to encourage local collaborations between artists, arts organizations, and non-arts organizations, in order to serve a broad range of Georgia’s residents. GaFCP, a nonprofit organization focused on improving conditions for children and families in Georgia, administers the GAP funding in this region.
