Colorado Arts Relief Fund Grant Awarded for 2022!

Rocky Mountain Arts has just been awarded a Colorado Arts Relief Fund Grant through the Creative Industries Division of the Office of Economic Development (CCI). This is a funding initiative passed by the State of Colorado Legislature during the First Extraordinary Session of the 72nd General Assembly from the Small Business Relief Program created in Section 4-48.5-316, enacted by Senate Bill 20B-001 and amended in the 2021 Regular Session with House Bill 21-1285. This amendment directs up to $15.5 million for relief payments to eligible artists, crew members and organizations like ours. We are deeply grateful…and beyond thrilled to be able to make this announcement.

The grant will enable us to pay our artists, performers, and staff for the December 2-4, 2022 Festival as well as hold more free programs for youth throughout the year.

The Festival is proud to announce the grant awarded by Colorado Creative Industries!

The agency’s grants benefit both small and large communities, with 38% of grant funds awarded in communities located outside the Denver metro area.

Colorado Creates is CCI’s largest grant program, providing critical financial support that helps nonprofit cultural organizations like us to produce and present arts and cultural activities, bringing jobs to our communities and enhancing quality of life. Thank you, CCI!
