On January 28 the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) announced the Innovate DC Special Arts Initiative, which offers one-time grants up to $100,000 to District-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts and community-based organizations.

The grant is aimed to reward projects that encourage and maintain the long-term development and impact on the arts, humanities and creative economy in Washington, DC.

Innovate DC is a funding initiative of the DCCAH that best reflects the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of the District of Columbia’s arts, humanities and cultural sectors. This new initiative strongly supports the Bowser administration’s efforts to advance a fresh start with programs that are creative, innovative and help improve neighborhoods in the District. Funding opportunities have been expanded to include culinary arts, fashion, graphic design, digital media and film.

Applications are available online at DCCAH will hold a series of grant writing workshops in February. Applications for the Innovate DC grant will be due Thursday, February 26, 2015.  For more information interested parties can contact Derek Younger or Moshe Adams, DCCAH Director of Grants, at 202-724-5613.
