Columbia Association Board votes to give $95,000 to Festival of the Arts

February 24, 2010|By Baltimore Sun reporter

Faced with a standing-room-only crowd of about 100 supporters of the arts and nonprofits organizations, the Columbia Association Board tentatively voted unanimously to give the Columbia Festival of the Arts its full funding allotment of $95,000 for this year's event. The board also voted unanimously to fund a total of $234,000 for community grants and nonprofits instead of a lower amount approved in a straw vote Monday night. The action reverses votes the board took Monday night to cut funding for grants to $200,000.
