Learn about our plans for grant and non-grant programs and services, grant deadlines, planned outcomes, strategies for implementation, and evaluation measures.

Region 2 board and staff members have developed each element of the plan over the course of the year with input from surveys, focus groups, and listening sessions in each of Region 2’s five counties. This input included expressed needs offered by artists, arts organizations, and arts-interested members of the public.

A draft of the plan will be available on Region 2’s website at r2arts.org for public viewing by May 2nd.
