Reynolds, IEDA announce $1.4M in arts and culture grants


Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds and the Iowa Economic Development Authority announced that more than $1.4 million in grants were awarded to advance the arts, culture and creative industries across Iowa. In all, 131 Iowa organizations and Iowans were recommended and approved for funding. The grants are matched by local and private investment and support a wide range of creative and cultural activities, from innovative public art projects and exhibitions to concerts, festivals, and theatrical and film productions. Funding for the grants were from annual appropriations from the Iowa Legislature to the IEDA and through federal-state partnerships with the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities. The Iowa Arts Council, which became part of the IEDA on July 1, along with Produce Iowa, the State Office of Film and Media, and the State Historic Preservation Office administered the grants.
