In 2019, its second year, the Moody Fund for the Arts awarded grants totaling $175,000  to 47 small and emerging Dallas arts organizations. This reflects an increase of $25,000 and 11 organizations from 2018. The recipients a) reflect the rich, diverse and entrepreneurial nature of the Dallas cultural ecosystem; b) embrace ethnic and culturally specific organizations, audiences and relevant subject matter; and c) support programming in Moody Performance Hall, as well as in all corners of Dallas, providing cultural experiences in traditionally under-served communities. The grants ranged in size from $1,800 to $5,000.
