#4286: Haitian group received Community Assets grant (fwd)

From: Lois E Wilcken <makandal-ny@juno.com>

La Troupe Makandal, which performs and teaches traditional Haitian music
and dance, has just received a Community Assets grant from the New York
Foundation for the Arts.  The Foundation's panel reviewed 73 applications
and awarded 10.  The grant provides administrative and technical
assistance to emergent organizations in the arts, particularly those that
serve needs at the community level.  The Troupe is the first Haitian
community organization to receive this grant, which is made possible
through the Rockefeller Foundation.
