The CRA awarded Old School Square (OSS) a $600,000 A-GUIDE grant in the CRA FY 2017-2018 budget which represents 16% of OSS’s $3,674,890 budget. The CRA also provided OSS an additional $300,000 this year to replace funding typically received from the City for a total funding of $900,000 represents 24% of OSS’s budget. The A-Guide grant was awarded to support two programs: 1) Performing Arts Program (Program A) and 2) Grassroots Partnerships (Program B). Below are highlights and program snapshots from Old School Square’s 2Q FY 2017-18 A-Guide Report ending March 31, 2018.
