Resources posted here offer current grant recipients information related to managing Arizona Commission on the Arts grants. Grantees may download Arts Commission logos, information about the grants process timeline, forms associated with grant payment claims and copies of award packet materials.


The Arizona Commission on the Arts uses GO (GrantsOnline), an online application management system, to receive and review grant applications. GO allows the Arts Commission to capture and archive applicant information and allows grant review panelists to review applications in a consistent format. GO also allows grantees to access information about their grants anytime, immediately and confidentially. Grantees may use GO accounts to check award and payment status, view panel comments, follow up on submitted paperwork, update profiles and complete Final Reports.
