Two Richmond arts nonprofits will receive grants from the National Endowment for the Arts with funding provided by the American Rescue Plan.

The Richmond Triangle Players Inc. and Storefront for Community Design will each receive $100,000 in grants.

Richmond Triangle Players Inc., located in historic Scott’s Addition, is a non-profit performing arts organization that produces programming grounded in LGBTQ+ experiences and supports queer art. Storefront for Community Design is a design hub focused on connecting community members with design tools and resources that build community capacity and engage the next generation of designers.

“The U.S. rescue plan continues to work for Virginia, which is why I was proud to support the historic relief program,” said Rep. A. Donald McEachin (D-VA-04). “The arts community has been heavily impacted by the pandemic, as limited funding and canceled projects have caused many groups to struggle with their businesses. Both of these nonprofits have worked hard to enhance and reflect Richmond’s values, and these grants will allow them to continue to make the city a better place for everyone.
