Upcoming Grants in September

Next month, we will have our Career Development, Rural and Community Art Project, and Two-Year Operating Support grants open to apply for starting on September 15th! This will give you or your organization six weeks to submit your application before the deadline on October 27th

Individual artists can apply to the Career Development Grant program  which provides funding of up to $3,000 for you to take advantage of an impending opportunity or to carry out a well-planned project that will allow you to grow as an artist. 

Organizations can apply to our Rural and Community Art Project and  Two-Year Operating Support grants, depending on your project’s needs. The Rural and Community Art Project Grant program provides funding of up to $5,000 to support community or artist-initiated high-quality arts activities that will impact the group and/or community your organization serves. 

Our Two-Year Operating Support Grant program is a matching grant program that awards up to $15,000 over a two-year period to high-quality, established federal nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) regional arts organizations to maintain their ongoing operating needs and services. This grant requires a 10% cash match of their ARAC request and applicants may not request more than $15,000.
