CAD Grants

The Community Arts Development (CAD) grant program provides support for local arts programming to occur in Frederick County. Nonprofit arts organizations and other nonprofit community organizations interested in conducting arts programming, may apply annually for general operating or project support. Each year the Frederick Arts Council distributes tens of thousands of dollars to these organizations, including $76,800 to 19 Frederick County organizations in the 2017 fiscal year, thanks in part to a $40,000 grant from Frederick County. Don’t let your organization miss out on this extraordinary opportunity!
