Subsidies for Schools

The Cincinnati Arts Association offers and administers grants to help defray the cost for our Artists on Tour and SchoolTime programs. CAA also administers the Aronoff Center Rental Subsidy Grant that assists nonprofit organizations with rental cost of the Aronoff Center.

Artists on Tour

The Cincinnati Arts Association has limited grant funds for the Artists on Tour program. Grants are awarded based on economic need of a school and on a first-come, first-served basis. The amount of the grant will vary depending on the economic need of the organization and amount of funds available.

Since funding is limited, grants cover a portion of the total cost and will only apply to one Artists on Tour session.
