TranspARTation Grant program

The Center for Rural Development would like to let you know of a grant opportunity for yourschool district!

The TranspARTation Grant from the Kentucky Arts Council has selected The Center for Rural Development as part of the TranspARTation Directory.  This is a  grant program that enables Kentucky teachers and schools to provide their students with high quality arts experiences by funding transportation to programs provided by organizations listed in the TranspARTation directory.  Schools may apply for a grant based on the mileage from their building to the facility and the number of buses necessary.  This grant is a reimbursement program.  Approved awards will not be paid until the field trip has been completed and the final report has been submitted.  The TranspARTation grant deadline is August 30, 2019.  Here is the link
