Shelby County arts receiving $40,000+ in state grants

The State of Indiana is divvying out nearly $10 million to 479 Hoosier organizations to help them through these unusual times.

Locally, Shelby Co. Historical Society (Grover Museum) is getting $19,480.01, Mainstreet Shelbyville, Inc. is getting $12,944.28 and Shelby County Players is getting $8,601.35.

The funds will come from the Arts, Cultural and Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) grant program. This initiative is made possible through a partnership between the Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC) and the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC), providing operational support to local organizations whose operations were disrupted by COVID-19.

Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch announced the grant awardees last week.

“These organizations help enhance the quality of life here in our great state,” Crouch said. “I am pleased to see the arts and cultural sector, which adds to Indiana’s tourism economy, get this funding.”
