(Formerly Technical Assistant Grant)
The Virginia Beach Arts and Humanities Commission understands that a successful
and thriving arts and humanities environment requires leaders with entrepreneurial savvy, strong administration skills, fluency with emerging technologies, commitment to participation, education, and public advocacy for the arts. Because of this, the Commission has established a Leadership and Organizational Development Grant program to support arts and humanities leaders' (professional administrators and board members) acquisition of skills and practical tools which hone their ability to lead, develop, and sustain the overall health and vitality of the arts and humanities organizations.
Activities may include hiring qualified, short-term consultants or sending staff or board members to conference, workshops, or seminars to increase job effectiveness.
Available funds are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis to qualified applicants following the commencement of the Commission's fiscal year, July 1st of every year.
Organizations are responsible for submitting applications eight business days prior to the Executive Committee meeting at which the organizations would like the application reviewed.
