Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $1,000 to Southern Illinois nonprofits, schools, libraries, and individual artists to provide high-quality arts programming and community engagement throughout the region. Eligible events must be open to the public.

Grants are intended to support artists and organizations and provide accessible arts programs and community outreach.

The goals of this grant program are to:
- Increase the geographic and community impact of public arts projects
- Bring arts activities to underserved communities (both urban and rural) that have limited access to larger arts funding agencies
- Encourage sustainable arts/cultural programming by community groups
- Support the community outreach initiatives of local artists
- Encourage organizations to work with local artists in communities
- Strengthen the visibility of area artists and art organizations
- Maximize access to arts/cultural opportunities for area residents

Estimated Size of Grant:

SAF awards will rarely exceed $1,000. Exceptions are sometimes made for projects that demonstrate extraordinary potential for wide geographic impact or those associated with donor-advised contributions.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

SAF applications for project funding will be accepted from incorporated not-for-profit organizations, public schools, and individual artists who propose projects that demonstrate a significant community outreach component.

Artists and organizations wishing to provide thoughtful and accessible arts programming and outreach for their communities are encouraged to apply. Applicants eligible for SAF grants include, but are not limited to: cultural arts groups, community music groups, theatre groups, dance collectives, film/video and literary groups, artist collectives, libraries, public and private schools, and other community cultural providers.

Please note that funding is not available to support projects that are undertaken as part of an academic program or submitted for course credit. Programs presented for course credit are also ineligible for funding.

Individual Applicants:
- Projects must demonstrate a strong public service or community outreach component.
- SAF dollars are not available for general or operating support or for professional development for individual artists.

Organizational Applicants:
- Organizations should generally have been incorporated for one year before applying.
- Unincorporated organizations should consult with CCA before proceeding.
- Cultural groups affiliated with community service organizations, faith-based organizations, or non-arts agencies may only apply for SAF grants in support of their arts/cultural activities.

In accordance with Illinois Arts Council Agency policy:
- SAF may not duplicate support already provided by IACA grants.
- SAF funds will not be awarded for capital expenditures (e.g. building projects), permanent fixtures or equipment, out of state touring, scholarships or reduced fees, or deficit reduction.

NOTE: Other IACA Policy restrictions may apply. Those who have not applied to CCA for Southern Arts Funding in the past are strongly advised to call the office before proceeding.

Pre-Application Information:

Final 2019 Application Deadline May 15, 2019

To encourage viability and commitment on the part of its grantees, the Southern Arts Fund requires applicants to fully match (100%) any funding request with cash and in-kind support from other sources.

First year applicants may have a minimum cash match of 25% with 75% in-kind support. Second year applicants with repeat projects may have a minimum of a 50% cash match with 50% in-kind support. And third year applicants with repeat projects must match 100% of the request amount with an equal amount of cash (i.e. no in-kind support may be counted).

Note to state-funded agencies and public schools:
State colleges/universities and other institutions funded by state tax dollars are required to match CCA/IAC funds from outside sources beyond staff time and overhead provided by the school that is already tax-payer funded.
