The MAX receives CARES grant
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Mississippi Arts + Entertainment Experience has been awarded one of the twenty-eight Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Emergency Grants given so far by the Mississippi Humanities Council. These grants are to help support Mississippi cultural organizations affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the federal CARES Act, the Mississippi Humanities Council is offering emergency grants of up to $20,000 to qualifying humanities organizations.
“We are very pleased to be able to direct these federal emergency funds to help the institutions that preserve and document Mississippi’s rich cultural heritage while enriching the quality of life in our communities,” said Dr. Stuart Rockoff, executive director of the Mississippi Humanities Council.
“As a nonprofit educational leader, these funds will help our organization continue its mission despite the financial hardship caused by the pandemic,” said Mark A Tullos, Jr., President/CEO of The MAX.
The CARES Act recognizes that the nonprofit arts industry is an important sector of America’s economy.
