In preparation for Fiscal Year 2018 grant deadlines for the Community Investment and Festival Grant programs, the Arts Commission is offering information sessions online and around the state during the month of January, 2017. These sessions will be suitable for both new and returning applicants and will cover the application process, highlight changes to the guidelines and requirements for the upcoming grant cycle and allow time for questions from participants.
Community Investment Grants (CIG) are available to nonprofit arts organizations, local arts agencies and tribal cultural organizations whose primary mission is to produce, present, teach or serve the arts. Organizations may use CIG funds for general operating expenses.
Festival Grants assist local arts agencies, tribal cultural organizations, government departments or agencies, university/college departments and other nonprofit cultural and social service organizations in their efforts to provide quality arts programming through festival activities.
In-person information sessions will be held in Mesa, Surprise, Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff. In addition to the in-person information sessions, online information sessions will also be offered covering the same content.
