Advancing Black Arts in Pittsburgh Announces Annual Distribution Awards

Thursday, December 1, 2022

Advancing Black Arts in Pittsburgh program has awarded grants totaling $1.61 million to support the work of individual artists and collectives as well as provide project, planning and operating support for arts organizations. The program is supported by the Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz Endowments. This grant cycle is also supported by philanthropist MacKenzie Scott who gave a $2 million gift in 2021 which allowed the program to provide multi-year support for a cohort of Black-led organizations and those serving a substantial or primarily Black audience. Pittsburgh Foundation and Heinz Endowments staffs worked together to determine how that award would be distributed in the community, and this is the first grant cycle to include a portion of the funds.
