United Arts of Central Florida (Facebook | Website) announced the recipients of its second cycle of Orange County Venue Subsidy Grants. 

United Arts and Orange County administrators modified the criteria of the Venue Subsidy Grants to make them accessible to groups with longer-term venue leases as well, in light of the pandemic. Fifteen organizations were awarded grants totaling $278,300. Ten were to assist with long-term leases; five organizations that were awarded grants in the first cycle forfeited those grants because of event cancellations and reapplied in the second cycle, switching from a venue rental subsidy to a long-term lease subsidy. 

New long-term lease grant recipients are: .

  • Crealde School of Art – $5,785
  • Garden Theatre – $11,619
  • Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida – $9,841

  • Orlando Science Center – $50,000
  • Orlando Shakes – $24,558
