Project Support grants are awarded to individuals, groups, and nonprofit organizations for specific arts projects and programs which are determined to be of value to the community. Concerts, performances, festivals, workshops, and readings are examples of projects eligible for funding through Project Support grants. Project Support grants have an at least one-to-one cash matching requirement.
Projects must include community engagement activities. This includes projects and activities undertaken by an organization or group as part of a mission strategy to build deep relationships between the organization/group and the communities in which it operates for the purpose of achieving mutual benefit.

If awarded, a Project Support grant will be $500-$10,000
