Normal, IL – March 29, 2017 - The Town of Normal is seeking applications for arts-related projects, programs or events to be funded through the 2017 Harmon Arts Grant Program. Applications will be accepted through Thursday, May 11. The grant application form is available on the Town of Normal website, www.normal.org
Harmon Arts Grants awarded in 2017 are available to art organizations for programs or events taking place between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018. Priority will be given to programs within the Town of Normal and proposals that make a program or event more accessible to the public, particularly seniors, students and low income residents.

In 2016, Normal awarded 25 grants totaling $50,000 to support local art programs and events. A full list of 2016 Harmon Art Grant recipients is available on the Town’s website.
The maximum grant award is $5,000. Grant applications will be reviewed by Harmon Arts Grant Committee members who will make recommendations to the Normal Town Council. The Council will select grantees in June, and awards will be presented on July 5.
