The Elders Learning Through the Arts (ELTA) Program offers funds to individuals and organizations serving District residents, ages 60 and older, in arts programs. The Commission recognizes that senior art programs are a growing field and one that has shown great benefit to older adults.
Grants will fund projects in the following areas: crafts, dance, literature, media, music, interdisciplinary/performance art, theater and visual arts. Funded projects will support innovative arts programming that provides access and positive enrichment alternatives for seniors.
District residents and District based organizations may apply. Grant amounts range from $500 to $5000.
