Center Receives Grant as Part of CARES Act

The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley is getting a little help from the National Endowment of the Arts to continue operations as COVID-19 restrictions keep the Center from fully re-opening. Executive Director Amber Jo Manuel says that the Center applied for a grant that is funded throguh the NEA as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security- CARES Act. The Center was eligible because it had received prior funding through the NEA.
