I'm pretty sure that the grants are given out as a help, not as the totality of money needed. (Even if they gave you enough for all of it, it would end up costing more than you anticipated, I think.) This allows them to support more interesting projects, and also ensures the artist(s) is motivated enough to do it. Typically, anyone posting about an art project they are working on will have a post that leads to the project's webpage, and there will be a link for the money.
Omar, what are you doing during august? Guarding the project against the DPW?
