In early 2020, a global pandemic, COVID-19, impacted not only the residents and businesses in the area, but due to quarantine restrictions and social distancing requirements, the City’s performing arts community was virtually shut down. Because live performances were entirely canceled due to the pandemic, professional performing arts companies could not open or fulfill their seasons. As a result, the Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission is seeking opportunities to support performing arts entities in Coeur d’Alene through a one-time bridge funding grant program.
This funding opportunity allows for a one-time bridge funding grant utilizing funds set aside and dedicated by the City’s urban renewal organization, ignite cda, with awarded funds to be used within 36 months. Funding awards may be anywhere from $1,000 to $50,000.
