Cultural Facilities Grant Program

Magical Theatre

The Commission oversees capital improvement funds appropriated by the General Assembly and Governor for planning, construction, renovation and expansion projects at Ohio's theaters, museums, arts education facilities, historical sites, and publicly-owned professional sports venues. The former Cultural Facilities Commission was merged with the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission in 2013.

Public investment in these facilities can help bolster community development and provide economic stimulus by creating jobs, encouraging consumer spending, serving as tourist attractions, providing children with creative learning experiences that greatly benefit the educational process, and contributing to a higher quality of life for Ohioans.
