Kentucky: Creative Aging
Creative aging and lifelong learning will be the central themes of the Kentucky Arts Council‘s (KAC) Arts Access Assistance grant program in the upcoming year. Arts Access Assistance (AAA) fosters cultural opportunities for underserved communities: populations whose access to the arts may be limited by barriers related to age, geographic isolation, ethnicity, economic circumstances, disabilities or other factors. Each year the Arts Council chooses a specific population to be served through AAA grants to public libraries, cooperative extension offices, social service agencies, health care facilities and civic organizations as well as arts and government entities. Awards made in the fiscal year 2013-2014 grants cycle will focus on programs that serve Kentuckians age 65 and older. Grants of up to $10,000 are awarded with a 25% cash matching requirement. For more information on the criteria used by KAC to adjudicate grants and evaluate the program, download the program guidelines or contact KAC Arts Access Director Sarah Schmitt.
