Arts Project Grants (APG)
Arts Project Grants support arts programming, productions or events open to the general public. Support is limited to an arts project taking place within a defined period of time. The program or event may have multiple components and/or performances.
This category may include projects supporting artists and cultural activities that broaden opportunities for underserved communities. An underserved community is defined as one whose residents often lack access to arts programs due to geographic isolation and/or have limited access to arts resources and programs due to economics, ethnic background, disability, or age.
Eligibility: All non-profit arts and non-arts organizations, as well as public agencies and subdivisions of government. PreK-12 accredited schools are encouraged to apply for Arts Learning Project or AiS/C grants. Organizations receiving Basic Support Grant funding may not apply in the Project Grant category. They may, however, be a collaborating partner in a Project Grant application made by another organization.
- Organizations and college/university departments may apply for either one Arts Project Grant or one Arts Learning Project Grant per deadline, not both.
- Organizations receiving Basic Support Grant funding may not apply for an Arts Project Grant. They may, however, be a collaborating partner in an Arts Project Grant application made by another organization.
