Greater Cincinnati Foundation Aronoff Center Rental Subsidy

The Greater Cincinnati Foundation established the rental subsidy grant program to assist small non-profit arts organizations with rental fees at the Aronoff Center for the Arts with the intent to make the Aronoff Center available to as many community arts groups as possible.  The rental subsidy program is administered by the Cincinnati Arts Association; however, an independent panel, consisting of volunteers from the community who have connections to the arts, reviews the applications and awards the grant amounts.
