Cuyahoga Arts & Culture Discusses Reduced Grant Funding
First the good news: Fewer people are smoking, which is good for their health. And the bad? Fewer smokers means less revenue from a Cuyahoga County cigarette tax that funds the arts. That means steep cuts in allocations this year from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture--the political subdivision of the State of Ohio that distrubutes the taxes. So steep, some of the large arts orginations say, it's hazardous to their financial health.
