The Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra and South Shore Arts were the biggest local recipients of Arts Organization Support grants for fiscal year 2023, at $17,201 each. Chicago Street Theatre, Indiana Ballet Theatre and Memorial Opera House each got $9,054.

Meanwhile, 13 Lake County and 12 Porter County organizations got funding for specific projects. Northwest Indiana Public Broadcasting was among those recipients.
