Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to Indiana nonprofit organizations and public entities to provide community arts activities in eligible regions. Priority will be given to programs that benefit underserved communities. Funding may be used to support activities such as exhibitions, arts series, training, classes, and seminars. Activities must take place in Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Marion, or Shelby County.

Arts Project Support (APS) grants provide funding to Indiana arts and no-arts organizations to support a distinct aspect of the organization's arts activities, such as a one-time event; a single production; an exhibition; an educational seminar; or series of related arts activities, such as art classes or training sessions that are open to the public or directed toward a specific Indiana audience that will benefit from the project that take place during the grant period. 

Objectives

To provide the general public access to quality arts and cultural activities, with special attention to underserved communities. Underserved communities are defined as people lacking access to arts programs, services, or resources due to isolated geographic location, low income, age, race, ethnicity, cultural differences, disability, or other circumstances. 

Eligible program expenses:

  • Salaries
  • Administrative fees
  • Artistic fees
  • Staff development and training
  • Space and equipment rental
  • Promotional costs
  • Production costs, supplies, etc. needed to support the project activities; and
  • Capital equipment expenditure - up to $500- providing it plays an integral part of the project being proposed (e.g. theater rigging, exhibition pedestals).
