Ohio,

Congratulations are extended to Owen McCafferty for his Grant Award from the Ohio Arts Council.

Here is the announcement!

congratulations on your FY 2020 grant award.


Grant awards depend on a variety of factors—including application scores and the total number of applicants approved for funding—but the biggest driver is the amount of funds available in the OAC's subsidy budget. With this in mind, we are very grateful to Governor Mike DeWine, and members of the Ohio House of Representatives and Ohio Senate, for acknowledging the importance of public funding for the arts through the state budget’s appropriation to the OAC. The historic $34.5 million allocated to the Ohio Arts Council this biennium represents a $5 million increase in funding from last biennium and ensures that more public dollars will be spent over the next two years on grants for the arts in Ohio than at any time in our agency’s 54-year history. Please make sure you write to the governor<https://governor.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/governor/contact> and your legislators<https://www.legislature.ohio.gov/legislators/district-maps> thanking them for your grant award and for supporting the arts in Ohio. Be sure to describe how your grant award will benefit your community!



Again, congratulations on your FY 2020 grant award from the Ohio Arts Council. On behalf of our board and staff, we wish you much success in your artistic endeavors! Thank you for all you do to support Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically through the arts.

You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
