Abstract

The Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs recently awarded $1.1 million in CARES Act grants to 173 of Iowa's arts, history and culture nonprofits in 51 counties to help them rebound from the corona virus pandemic. It won't fix everything, but it's a big start. The new round of grants, added to an earlier round in April, brings the department’s sum of emergency grants to more than $1.3 million, thanks to funding from the Iowa Legislature, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities and Arts Midwest – with unanimous support from Iowa’s congressional delegation. Please help thank Iowa’s elected officials in Washington for standing up for arts and culture during these challenging times.
