Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Maryland nonprofit organizations, agencies, IHEs, and religious institutions in eligible locations to support local arts programming. Funding is intended to support the general operations of arts organizations, as well as public arts programs for the local residents and visitors. Eligible applicants are located or provide programs in Harford County.

There are two types of grants under the Community Arts Development grant umbrella:

  1. General Operating: Nonprofit arts organizations in Harford County are eligible to receive support of up to one‐third of their total operating budget. Arts organizations are defined as those producing or presenting the arts through public programs or services. This definition is determined as any organizations whose mission and financial statements reflect that the majority of resources are dedicated to producing and presenting the arts. Examples of these include galleries, orchestras, theaters, or art museums.
  2. Arts Programming: Nonprofit organizations whose main purpose is not producing or presenting the arts, but do regularly provide public arts programs in Harford County, are also eligible to receive support of up to one‐half of the direct costs of their arts programming only. These might include community centers, human service organizations, or non‐art museums in Harford County. Units of government, colleges or universities, and churches are also eligible.

Supported arts disciplines:

  • Folk & traditional arts
  • Literary arts
  • Media arts
  • Performing arts
  • Visual arts​ ​​​
