The Highground Receives COVID-19 Cultural Organization Grant

The Highground is grateful to be a recipient of a state-awarded cultural organization grant and excited to share the good news with supporters. In early November, Governor Tony Evers announced that the Wisconsin Department of Administration had awarded $15 million in COVID-19 Cultural Organization Grants to 385 cultural organizations in Wisconsin. This program provides crucial funds to help cultural nonprofit organizations impacted by the pandemic.

“These cultural organizations represent the vibrant fabric of communities across our state and support Wisconsin’s tourism industry and local economies,” said Gov. Evers. “This grant program will help organizations cover essential costs related to keeping their employees and communities safe throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”

These grant awards can be used to cover lost revenue, cleaning and sanitization or the purchase of services and equipment to facilitate telework.
