We are pleased and incredibly honored to announce a $67,525 grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts through its COVID relief fund. This grant will help Peters Valley overcome the significant losses it’s experienced due to the current pandemic. This grant is critical to our ability to continue serving our audiences when the arts are needed more than ever.
We thank the board and staff of NJSCA, as well as Governor Murphy and his Administration for their recognition of the need to support the arts and culture sector at this time. Funds from the grant will go directly to supporting the organization’s general operating expenses to ensure we can continue to support artists and offer important creative experiences now and into the future.
This grant is part of $5 million in federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding directed to the State Arts Council by the Murphy Administration to support New Jersey’s hard-hit arts sector. The Council identified 97 organizations to receive the funding through an application process earlier this month.
