The Nebraska Arts Council makes its biggest impact through the distribution of grants for arts projects and programming throughout the state. From small town festivals to professional productions at the Orpheum Theater, from an arts classroom in the Sandhills to an internationally-recognized artist residency in Omaha, it’s more than likely that grant money from the Nebraska Arts Council helped make it happen.

Thank you to everyone who applied at our March 1 deadline. So, what's next?

Grant applications are highly competitive, and our staff closely examines each application before passing along to panelists for review. Grant panels will be scheduled for mid-May. These meetings are open to the public and applicants are encouraged to attend.
