In the school year 2015-16, COA initiated a "soft" roll out of a potential arts grant program that would allow anyone involved with East Greenwich schools to propose a program and apply for funding.


Programs and initiatives that have been supported range from multi-cultural artist residencies to Shakespeare and "Stomp" and school drama programs.


The program is currently under revision by a committee to improve and expand upon COA's ability to offer appropriate funding to where it is needed most.


To receive more information, guidance on the application process and a link to the application, please contact us at
