Recently the ECCOTA board and staff had to make the difficult decision to no longer offer the local arts event grant program. Due to ongoing cuts in funding we had to choose between offering significantly less money total, awarding far fewer grants, or ending the program. The funds will now go into our general fund to be used for our ongoing effort to promote opportunities and participation in the arts in Elk County.

If you have any questions about this decision or about other grant opportunities, please contact Sara Frank, Community Outreach & Gallery Coordinator by phone, 814-772-7051 or email, art@eccota.com


ECCOTA receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency
