Tri-M Foundation has announced the recipients for the first two cycles of its Performing Arts Grant program. Launched in 2020, the Performing Arts Grant program supports the development and presentation of innovative, high-quality performing arts projects, events, and festivals by regional non-profit arts organizations. Dozens of arts organizations submitted an on-line application, and nine were awarded across the two funding cycles.

Awards ranged from $3,000 to $10,000 each. To learn more about the Performing Arts Grant program, performing arts organizations with an active 501(c)(3) should visit the website ( The application deadline for the next round of funding is February 15, 2022.
