LACA receives MCACA Operational Support Grant

The Ludington Area Center for the Arts (LACA) is excited to announce that it has been awarded a operational support grant of $11,250 from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) for the fiscal year of 2022.

Organizations receiving a grant from MCACA and the NEA are required to match those funds with other public and private dollars. LACA receives significant funding and volunteer support from the local community.

“Support from MCACA and NEA will allow LACA to continue to provide art experiences to the residents and visitors of Mason County and the surrounding area,” LACA Executive Director Andrew Skinner said. “From youth programming and art classes and workshops to performances, the Ludington Area Center for the Arts prides itself on bringing quality, cultural experiences to our rural area.”

The grant was awarded in October through MCACA’s peer review process which allows for each grant application to be competitively considered by a panel of in-state and out-of-state arts and culture professionals. This ensures the taxpayers, who support this project through legislation appropriations, and all other visitors or residents in Michigan will have access to the highest quality arts and cultural experiences.

A complete list of grant awards around the state is available by visiting the MCACA website at www.michigan.gov/arts.

The Ludington Area Center for the Arts is a non-profit community arts organization that cultivates access to and advocacy for the arts and culture in West Michigan. The center is located at 107 S. Harrison St. in downtown Ludington. For more information visit www.ludingtonartscenter.org of find them on Facebook @LudingtonArtsCenter.
