The Kresge Foundation announced $5.1 million in operating-support grants to 66 arts and cultural organization in the tri-county region.
Over half the three-year grants are going to organizations in the city of Detroit.
Recipients represent a broad cross-section of local arts organizations, from the very large, like the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, to small — including the Detroit Children’s Choir, the Jewish Ensemble Theatre and Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit.
Kresge has granted more than $24 million for operating support since 2007.
The Erb Family Foundation, which collaborates with Kresge, also announced $4 million of its own operating grants to 43 organizations, all but two of which are in Detroit.
