“Like so many aspects of our culture, live-performance venues around the world have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and grant funding has been critical in allowing us to weather the storm,” said Jim Dougherty, executive director of the CAC. “We’re incredibly grateful for this award, which helps enable us to continue bringing quality arts and cultural experiences to our area.”

The mission of the PCA is to strengthen the cultural, educational and economic vitality of Pennsylvania’s communities through the arts.

Use of the grant funds is limited, and the CAC will utilize the funding for fees for artists and other personnel.

Funding for CAC programming is derived from various sources, including grants, individual donations, corporate sponsorships and Educational Improvement Tax Credit funds.

The CAC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pennsylvania College of Technology, a national leader in applied technology education.
