Altria Donates 200K to Arts District 

Mayor Dwight C. Jones this morning announced a $200,000 grant from Altria for the city’s arts and cultural district -- money which will go toward marketing, murals and facade improvements.

“The Broad Street downtown corridor is the art and cultural hub of Richmond,” said Mayor Jones in a press release. “The revitalization of Broad Street is a top priority and this investment from Altria is so important to our efforts to improve this very important gateway to our city.”

A majority of the grant, $100,000, will go to facade improvements, with the remainder being split $50,000 each to marketing and murals.

“Richmond is our home and we believe it’s essential to invest in our hometown,” said Jennifer Hunter, Senior Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Altria Client Services. “This new grants program further deepens our longstanding commitment to revitalizing downtown Richmond, and is another example of what’s possible when the public and private sectors think creatively and collaborate.”
