CITY OF DALLAS/OFFICE OF CULTURAL AFFAIRS AWARDS CAC $200,000 FACILITY GRANT
We are thrilled to announce that we have received a grant for $200,000 for facility improvements by the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs! The grant will allow CAC to remodel and expand existing office space, construct two ADA-compliant bathrooms in the main building, renovate the staff and student breakroom as well as redirect the front entry of the WPA-built school with a more inviting and accessible entrance in three phases with construction beginning in the spring of 2018. The grant has been leveraged with other funders, and so far the Hillcrest Foundation and the Thomas Charitable Lead Annuity Trust have donated another $36,000. CAC is actively raising the remaining $64,000 from other foundations and individuals.
