2024 Spring Set Deadline Grants are now open!

Nebraska Arts Council has opened its Spring 202 Set Deadline Grants. The deadline for these grants is Friday, March 15, 2024.

The following categories are open:

Artists in Schools/Communities

The Artists in Schools/Communities (AiS/C) Grant program provides funds to hire artists from the Nebraska Arts Council’s Artist Roster (Nebraska Arts Council website) to lead interactive sessions conducted online or in-person.

AiS/C grant applications with requests up to $1,650 (up to 30 artist sessions) have a floating deadline (apply at least six weeks ahead). The March 15 deadline is for extended AiS/C artist residencies with grant requests over $1,650.

Arts Learning Project Grant

Arts Learning Projects Grants support programs with a strong educational emphasis in preK-12 schools or in community settings. Community-based projects must incorporate educational learning outcomes in the arts. School-based projects must incorporate local or national educational learning standards in the arts and may also be aligned with standards in other disciplines.

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.
