Our Journey Action Grants

In partnership with Rockford Art Deli’s Here For Good campaign, the Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau and Rockford Area Arts Council continue to partner for the Our Journey Action-Grant Program to support the local arts! Proceeds from each Rockford-themed mask (still available for online order) sale seed the Our Journey Action-Grant program, which benefits local artists and arts organizations to drive excellent project work in Winnebago County.
