TOLEDO, Ohio — The Arts Commission announced a partnership with the City of Toledo and the Lucas County Board of Commissioners to launch the Toledo and Lucas County Arts Relief Grant Program.

The $450,000 program will be administered by The Arts Commission and offer financial relief for local artists and small arts and culture organizations through an application process.

The goal of this program is to provide economic relief to artists and organizations whose ability to earn an income has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and who have not been able to access CARES Act funds, or other relief efforts.
