FY2017 ARTS & COMMUNITY IMPACT Project Grants - New or adapted arts-based projects that create meaningful relationships with non-arts stakeholders and connect intrinsic values of the arts to identifiable community need. $5,000-10,000; $10,000-20,000.
FY2017 ARTS LEARNING Project Grants - Arts in education-based projects that engage partners to advance teaching and learning in the arts, through quality arts engagement, arts integration, arts exploration and discovery experiences in a community setting. $5,000-20,000.
FY2017 PUBLIC ART Community Project Grants - Provides funding for community based public art projects. $5,000-$20,000
FY2017 Supporting Arts in Place (operating support) - Predominantly unrestricted operating support determined via funding calculations primarily generated from organizational data.
• FY2017 Regional Initiative Grants ($1,000-$4,000) will also be discussed. The deadline for the Regional Initiative grants is July 29, 2016.
