The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa recently awarded $5,000 in financial assistance through its Small Grants Program with local non-profit organizations and educators among the list of those awarded. A local teacher has also been recommended to receive a grant from the Arts in Education fund through the Community Foundation of West Alabama.

The Small Grants Program was established in 1986 to aid Tuscaloosa County non-profit organizations, educators and artists in their pursuit of projects contributing to the greater good of local students and citizens through the arts.
A committee comprised of members of The Arts Council’s Board of Directors was in charge of the selection process for both grant programs.
