The Westmoreland County Bureau of Parks and Recreation is offering grants to non-profit organizations to support arts-related projects and activities that will benefit Westmoreland County residents.  These awards are designed to support and encourage arts programming in Westmoreland County.  This grant program has been made possible by the Westmoreland County Commissioners. 

Applications for funding are available through the Westmoreland County Bureau of Parks and Recreation.  Local non-profit arts organizations and government entities involved in the production or display of arts activities are eligible to apply.  Eligible arts activities include projects involving music, theater, dance, puppetry, and other performing and visual arts.

A qualified, independent review board will evaluate all applications received by Tuesday, March 26, 2024.  Up to 60% project funding is available only for direct costs of proposed projects, and not for general administration, capital expenses or in-kind costs.  Projects that are not open to the general public, take place outside Westmoreland County, have a religious purpose, or serve as vehicles for prizes, fundraising, or academic credit are also not eligible for funding. Applicants are encouraged to read all application criteria carefully before submitting.

These grant funds are available for projects taking place from June 1 to December 31, 2024. Applicants will be notified of grant awards by June 6, 2024. The application is available online at or by calling Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation at (724) 830-3950.
