Art center receives state grants.

February 19, 2015

LUDINGTON — The Ludington Area Center for the Arts (LACA) was recently awarded two grants from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA).  An operational support grant in the amount of $18,750 will support a skilled and dedicated staff for the non-profit arts center.  Of the amount provided by this grant $1,810 are federal funds from the National Endowment for the Arts. A second MCACA grant for capital improvements was awarded to the LACA in the amount of $20,000 to replace an antiquated and inefficient boiler heating system with new energy efficient system to heat the 25,000 square foot facility. This capital improvement upgrade will substantially conserve energy and will greatly reduce utility costs for the organization for many years to come.

These state of Michigan grants provide partial funding to address staffing and building maintenance issues and will allow the LACA to apply other critical funding toward programming initiatives and community outreach. LACA Executive Director Corinn VanWyck said, “We are continually encouraged by this vital support from the state of Michigan through the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. This is a tangible example of the confidence that leaders in the arts in this state have for the arts in Michigan and for the work that LACA is doing to create increased access to the arts in our community.”

Funds from both grants must be matched dollar for dollar through individual and corporate funding.
