Over $2.1 million in Middlesex County Arts, History, and Historic Preservation & Capital Grants awarded for 2022

Middlesex County has announced 2022 Arts & History Grant Awards in the amount of $2,178,672 to 109 municipal agencies and local nonprofit arts and history organizations.

Currently, three types of funding opportunities are available: General Operating Support, Program Support, and Historic Preservation & Capital Grants. The grant cycle opens each summer with the announcement of the grant guidelines and a series of Grant Writing Workshops, which were held virtually last year.

Funding for these grants is made possible by the Middlesex County Board of County Commissioners through the Middlesex County Cultural and Arts Trust Fund. Middlesex County funding partners include the New Jersey Historical Commission and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

With a strong tradition of supporting arts, culture, and history, Middlesex County aspires to reach all County residents through these funded programs and directly through virtual and in-person programming provided by the Arts Institute of Middlesex County. The Arts Institute oversees arts, culture, folklife, and history for the County with offices in the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center and at the East Jersey Old Town Village.

The Institute provides technical assistance workshops, arts and history lectures, artist interviews, folklife events and workshops, cultural foodways tutorials and kits, makerspace workshops, arts education programs, public art partnerships, and a variety of interactive arts and wellness programs for seniors and veterans.
