The Arizona Commission on the Arts, an agency of the State of Arizona, has awarded $5,000 Research and Development Grants to 31 artists throughout the state. This year, thanks to a new public-philanthropic partnership between the state agency and the Arizona Community Foundation (ACF), and through funding from the Newton and Betty Rosenzweig Fund for the Arts, the number of available awards more than doubled, from 15 to 31.
The $11.8 billion fiscal year 2020 budget passed early Tuesday morning by the Arizona State Legislature and signed into law by Governor Doug Ducey includes $2.2 million dedicated to the arts in Arizona.
The Arizona Commission on the Arts endeavors to continually improve the service and support it provides to Arizona’s arts sector. To this end, the Arts Commission invites your candid appraisal of the agency and its work in this confidential survey. Information you provide will be used in the construction of annual reports to the Governor of Arizona and to the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as for internal performance measures.
