TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski on Friday announced that applications are now open for Fiscal Year 2023 Operating Grants to support not-for-profit organizations that offer visual and performing arts, science, and humanities programs.
Organizations both in and near Baltimore County may apply for grants, as long as they serve Baltimore County’s residents.
“Baltimore County is proud to be home to so many diverse art and cultural assets which not only enrich the fabric of our communities, but strengthen our local economy,” said Olszewski. “We’re proud to provide these grants to support arts and cultural opportunities here in Baltimore County and throughout our region.”

The Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences operating grant applications are available on the County website and the deadline for applying is Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at 4 p.m.
