Arts Project Grant

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. Examples of project types include exhibitions, performances, poetry readings, commissions and/or support of new work development, arts festivals, community murals, and ethnic heritage projects. This category may include projects supporting artists and cultural activities that broaden opportunities for underserved communities.
