(Serving The Arts Regionally)
Adams County Arts Council (ACAC) is proud to offer the 22nd Annual STAR Grant Program. We thank the Adams County Commissioners, the Robert C. Hoffman Charitable Endowment Trust, and the Borough of Gettysburg for their generous support of this program, which would not exist without their understanding of the value of the arts in our community.
The STAR Grant Program was created as a result of a 1994-95 community assessment that determined the need to fund quality arts programs in schools and the community. Since then, the STAR Grant Program has been helping schools and artists working to make this an arts-rich community.
Over the past 21 years, the STAR Grant Program has awarded more than $267,700 and has served more than 288,246 people with a wealth of arts programs.
ACAC administers the STAR Grant Program. Our role is to make applications available to Adams County non-profits, schools, and artists; collect grant applications; identify and recruit community members to serve as panelists to read and rank grants according to application specifications; send award letters and contracts; mail checks to successful applicants; collect final project reports; and report to our funders.
Please read the application directions carefully. We wish you the best of luck! The STAR Grant Program helps ACAC to deliver its mission to cultivate an arts-rich community.
Applications for 2021 STAR Grants are no longer being accepted. We will post deadlines and application information for 2022 STAR Grants in July.
