"The program is unique in its approach to embracing individual artists regardless of discipline as important to the arts and cultural sector, and that's something that doesn't happen in every community," said Tom Schorgl, president and CEO of the Community Partnership.
"Each has to do some sort of public engagement and we will certainly participate and invite Cuyahoga Arts
and Culture to be part of whatever that public engagement is," Schorgl
Prior to the cuts in the program, Cuyahoga Arts
and Culture awarded 20 grants of $20,000 each year.
Under the current two-year cycle, no new grants would be available until 2018.
Applications will likely be accepted in 2017, Schorgl
