If a statewide tour is proposed with many different community presenters, it is strongly advised that a Letter of Intent be submitted to the Fund. The letter should include: list of community presenters; cost of travel; activities within each community and dates of the tour. The letter may originate with the presenter or with the producing company after agreements have been reached with the community presenters. The letter should be submitted at least 90 days prior to the tour. A conversation with Arts Council staff is also highly recommended.

Note: Although any amount up to $5,000 may be requested, the average grant amount will be between $500 and $1,000. Funding will be based on the quality of the project.
