Commission on the Arts and Humanities Releases Five New Grant Programs

Today, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) released guidelines for five new funding opportunities: the Arts Stabilization Grant, the Sister Cities International Arts Grant, the Arts and Healing Grant, Special Project Funding Opportunities, and the second round of the Community Arts Grant. These grant programs are only open to artists and arts organizations that are based in the District of Columbia.

The new grant programs are a result of a $6.8 million increase granted by the DC City Council on June 5, 2012.


Where to Get Help

Find a Service Provider


DBH contracts with community based providers to provide mental health services and supports. You can contact a provider of your choice directly or call the Access Helpline for assistance. DBH certifies each provider to ensure conformity to federal and District regulations and monitors quality of care.

Help for Stressful Economic Times

Depression and anxiety are normal reactions to abnormal times or stress. With increased concerns about losing jobs, homes and savings, more people are showing signs of psychological distress. It’s important for us all to learn to recognize the symptoms of depression so we can get help for ourselves or for others when it’s needed.

I Am the Difference
Sometimes we just need someone
to listen to our problems to feel better.
