The Kentucky Arts Council has awarded more than $1.8 million in operational support funding to 102 nonprofit arts and cultural organizations for fiscal year 2014 through the Kentucky Arts Partnership (KAP) grant.

The KAP grant provides support to nonprofit organizations offering year-round arts services and programs directly for the benefit of the public.

The competitive grant process funds applicants based on operating revenues, a panel review of applications, and funds available for the program.

KAP organizations vary in size and are located in rural, suburban and urban communities. In fiscal year 2013, the arts council provided 104 organizations with KAP funding.

"Kentucky is unique among states of our size due to a wide geographic distribution of arts organizations across our counties," said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. "This shows us that the people of the Commonwealth value the arts and want to participate in the arts because they have dedicated themselves to creating a home for the arts to prosper in their own communities. We are glad we can continue to support these efforts."
