R&D Grants provide funding support to Arizona artists as they work to advance their artistic practice, expand their creative horizons, and deepen the impact of their work.
The Arizona Commission on the Arts awarded $5,000 research & Development grants to 24 Arizona artists working to advance their artistic practice, expand their creative horizons, and deepen the impact of their work.
According to new data released on March 30, 2021, by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Arizona’s arts and culture industries contributed $10.87 Billion to the state’s economy in 2019, employing nearly 89,033 Arizonans who earned a combined $5.59 Billion, contributing more to the State’s economy than mining, agriculture, and forestry combined.
Eligible applicants may qualify for SVO Grants equal to 45% of their gross earned revenue, with the maximum amount available for a single grant award of $10 million. $2 billion is reserved for eligible applications with up to 50 full-time employees.
