The goal of Micro Grants is to provide need-based financial support to assist artists and community organizations in Nebraska. This is an invitational grant program, designed to provide non-matching funds for artists and first-time applicants to NAC. Applications under consideration will align with one of two tracks:
Important: Arts Projects must be arts-related and benefit public audiences.
Eligibility: Artists in any discipline residing in Nebraska. Non-profit organizations incorporated in Nebraska or established non-incorporated organizations* with Nebraska addresses, who are first-time applicants and have an annual budget below $30,000.00 may apply.
*Includes, but is not limited to, neighborhood associations, community groups, art co-ops, or ensembles.
Letters of Interest:
Artists and organizations who fit the eligibility requirements are encouraged to send a one-page Letter of Interest (LOI) to email@example.com.
The letter must include the following:
Artist Development -- A description of how you will use the funds to further your creative and/or professional presence and how your past work may have been impeded due to a lack of funding. Include a brief summary of your artistic credentials.
Arts Projects -- A description of how you will use the funds and the project’s artistic and community impact. Include a brief summary of how past arts projects may have been impeded due to a lack of funding.
Grant Amounts: $500 maximum. This is a non-matching grant to be disbursed prior to the project start date or purchase of equipment. An applicant may submit one application per year.
Deadline: The Letter of Interest (LOI) must be received no less than six weeks prior to the start of the project or purchase of equipment. Applications must be submitted no later than four weeks prior to the project start date or purchase of equipment. Any application interviews must be completed no later than four weeks prior to the project start date or date of equipment purchase.
