PROVIDENCE— The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts has opened the application process for the State Cultural Facilities Grant Program, officials said.

The matching grant program promotes careful planning for capital improvement, preservation, renovation and new construction projects for public and nonprofit artistic, performance centers, historic sites, museums and cultural art centers.

About $2.5 million in total is available this year. Applications are due on Oct. 1 and applicants will be notified of grant decisions by Dec. 31. To assist in the application process, the arts council has scheduled a virtual workshop for Sept. 13.
