Due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of the grant proposal plans as originally submitted to the FCAA in the Spring of 2020 had to be revised and in some cases reimagined almost entirely in order to be carried out safely. The FCAA has been very impressed at the courage and ingenuity of the many organizations and schools who continue to provide artistic outlets and opportunities in the community, despite the challenges of the current circumstances. Please note that in any cases where the proposed event or project is completely cancelled or the revised proposal is not approved, the FCAA will not be able to distribute those funds. However, the above-named awardees have all submitted successful grant applications and should be recognized for their accomplishment.
