SchoolTime Ticket & Transportation Grants

The Cincinnati Arts Association Ticket and Transportation Grants help schools pay for attendance and transportation costs to attend our SchoolTime performances. Grants cover a portion of the total cost to attend and are awarded based on economic need of the school. Moreover, funds are limited and awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. The amount of the grant will vary depending on the economic need and amount of funds available.

For 2020-21, funding is still pending. Schools may apply for ticket and transportation grants but they will not be awarded until at least September.

Currently, CAA is only accepting applications for the following shows: "MLK Salute," "Lily's Crossing," "Shakespeare in Jazz," and "It's Okay to be Different."

  • Complete online ticket and transportation grant application
  • An application form must be completed each school year. Prior grant awards do not guarentee that a school will receive a grant in the future.
  • Indicate whether you are applying for ticket or transportation or both by selecting the appropriate check box(es).
  • Please allow 10 working days to process.
  • For ticket grants, the amount will be on your invoice. Please check the amount. Most grants only reduce the amount owed.
  • For transportation grants, an award letter will be sent notifying the school of its grant. 
    • Schools are responsibile for making their own travel arrangements.
    • Transportation grants are paid on an reimbursement basis. CAA does not pay bus companies directly.
    • To receive reimbursement, provide a copy of an invoice or canceled check no later than 60 days after the performance. CAA cannot reimbuse after the 60 day deadline.
