Grant Programs and Deadlines for FY21

ARAC has decided that for our current fiscal year, we will offer a full set of grant programs this Winter/Spring. Our board has decided that we would offer a special round of the Emergency Working Artist Grants for individuals this fall, enhance funding for our Operating Support grants for organizations, and then offer a full range of project grants in the Winter/Spring. If pandemic conditions worsen, or budget cuts are worse than forecast, we will re-evaluate this decision in December before opening the individual grant programs, but we expect this plan to be sustainable. Those programs and deadlines are:

Individual Artist Project Grant. Up to $4,000 for an individual project. Deadline, Friday, January 29, 2021 at 4:30 p.m.
