Each year, the Arizona Commission on the Arts convenes volunteer panelists from across the state to review applications for Community Investment Grants and Festival Grants. These meetings are open to the public and offer a prime opportunity for current and prospective applicants to observe the panel review process and learn more about the qualities of successful, competitive grant applications.

Panel review meetings will be held at the offices of the Arizona Commission on the Arts (417 W Roosevelt, Phoenix, AZ 85003) at 10:00 am, beginning with a panel orientation and general business. Grant review discussion will begin at approximately 10:30 am. Can’t make it to our office in Phoenix? You can also listen in to a live-stream of the panels online.

Alternate Year Reminder

Applicant organizations at the CIG I, II, and III levels that received funding in Fiscal Year 2018 submitted Alternate Year applications for Fiscal Year 2019 funding. These applications will not go to panel review and will maintain their FY2018 funding priority. (Though funding priority will remain the same, actual grant award amounts may fluctuate from one year to the next depending on the availability of Arts Commission funds.)
