Arts Project Support (APS) grants provide funding to Indiana 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations and public entities for a specific arts project or arts activity(ies). Some examples of eligible projects include a one-time art event, a single performance, an exhibition, an educational workshop, or series of related arts activities such as art classes or training sessions that are open to the public whether free or for a fee.
This grant program’s objective is to provide: (1) the general public access to quality arts activities, with special attention to underserved communities; and, (2) support for local or Indiana artists who are a vital part of Indiana’s economy and community life.
“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 as substantiated by the applicant.
"Public access" means the project must result in a product or activity available to the public. "Available" means activities must be accessible to persons with special needs and open to the audience, participants, or public, either free or by reasonable admission or service charge.
