Support the Arts license plate grant
program seeks to promote
the arts in Alabama, with focus on arts education


MONTGOMERY,
Ala.,
(February 1, 2022) The Alabama Arts License Plate Advisory Committee awarded
41 grants
totaling $164,750 during
a virtual meeting on January 26, 2022. This round of grants will support arts
education and community arts projects occurring January – September 2022.


Through the grant program, proceeds from the sale of the Support
the Arts
license plate are used to fund arts programs, organizations, and
activities across the state. Since 2004, over $2 million in grants has been
awarded to schools, municipalities, and arts organizations across Alabama.


The
recent grants respond to applications submitted at the December 15, 2021,
deadline and represent the first round of grants awarded in the 2022 fiscal
year. Lisa Weil of Montgomery chairs the six-member committee, which includes:
Allison Dillon-Jauken of Huntsville, Jane Kohl of Guntersville, Andy Meadows of
Montgomery, Donna Russell of Gadsden, and Cynthia Thrash of Opelika.


Committee members are
appointed according to directives in the enabling legislation and meet twice
annually. The committee’s primary responsibility is to evaluate grant
applications and award grants that support art programs and arts education
throughout Alabama. Members serve voluntarily, and one member is appointed by
each of the following organizations or individuals: the Alabama State Council
on the Arts, Alabama Arts Alliance, the State Department of Education, the
Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, and the Speaker of the House of
Representatives.


Nonprofit organizations,
municipalities, universities, and schools can apply for Arts License Tag grant
funding at arts.alabama.gov. The
next application deadline June 15, 2022.


Alabama residents are encouraged
to join the effort to fund the arts by purchasing a Support the Arts
plate for their vehicle. More information at revenue.alabama.gov.
