Great news as Stay Gallery has been named a Creative Recovery LA grantee.
The Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture announced last month that over $31 million would be awarded to over 750 arts, cultural, and equity-building organizations, a historic county investment in the nonprofit creative sector.
Over $26 million of that sum comes from Los Angeles County’s allocation of the Biden Administration’s American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) relief and recovery programs.
To distribute these one-time funds, the Department of Arts and Culture designed and implemented Creative Recovery LA. This initiative supports the nonprofit creative sector that is facing ongoing challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, and focuses on organizations located in and serving communities most impacted by COVID and inequity.
"This is part of the County’s effort to address inequities and better support underserved communities that were hit hard by the pandemic, and that includes the arts and cultural organizations that serve our communities," said Janice Hahn, Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair and Supervisor to the Fourth District. "All three of the Department of Arts and Culture programs that make up this $31 million investment—the ARPA funds that the County earmarked for the creative sector, along with the Department’s two ongoing grant programs—prioritize equity and organizational sustainability, so that we can build back LA County’s creative economy in this challenging time."
