The Arts Council of Haliburton Highlands is getting a $9,000 multi-year grant.

The money will help run the council’s programs. Interim Chair Erin Kernohan-Berning says they support organizations that increase public engagement in the arts and work with local artists. She says it’s also about supporting the activities that reflect the needs of local artists and art organizations.

The funds are coming from the Ontario Arts Council, and will continue for the next three years.
