 A vibrant arts and humanities presence greatly improves the lives of everyone in our diverse and inclusive community.

That’s why for over 35 years, The Arts and Humanities Council  has supported and invested in Montgomery County’s creative economy.  Today, we serve over 450 cultural organizations and more than 1,500 individual artists and scholars in Montgomery County.  As Montgomery County’s designated agency for arts and humanities, we provide the cultural sector with many critical services, including:


We distribute over $4.5 million in grants each year to organizations and individuals to help fund culture in our County.
