The Contracts for Arts Services (CAS) program is the City of Atlanta’s means of granting public funding to the arts. CAS awards contracts related to the production, creation, presentation, exhibition and management of artistic and cultural services in the City of Atlanta. The program recognizes that the presence of artists and non-profit organizations involved in the arts are critical to Atlanta’s cultural vitality. The arts enrich the creative development of the city’s diverse populations and contribute positively to the social and economic well being of Atlanta and the region. The CAS program also provides matching support for projects posted on power2give, a crowdfunding site for arts, designed specifically to connect donors to projects that inspire them.
