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 2022-23, funding is still pending. Check back soon for more information.

  • Complete a SchoolTime Order Form online when the performance goes on sale. The ticket and transportation grant application is within this form.
  • 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 emailed 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 30 days after the performance. CAA cannot reimbuse after the 30 day deadline.
