Grants starting at $55,000 to USA arts organizations working together with artists from around the world to increase interest in jazz, theater, and contemporary dance. Intent to Apply Forms are due on April 24 and Preliminary Proposals are due on May 29. On May 6 and 14, a webinar will be offered, and an additional webinar will take place on July 29, 2015.
Organizations must have a prior history of working together with the artist/s, and they must mutually conceive the proposals in order to receive a grant.
While this program will certainly support artists at an organization of the same discipline, it will also support partnerships between organizations and artists not of the same discipline, e.g., a film artist at a jazz organization or a dance artist at a theater, etc. In all cases, however, the purpose of the grant is to build demand for jazz, dance, or theater, even if the artist comes from another field.
Grant funds will be apportioned in the following way:
1. Artist Support: At least half of the grant amount ($27,500 of a $55,000 grant; $55,000 of an $110,000 grant) must be designated for compensation, benefits, and per diem costs for the participating artist(s). Organizations may choose to allocate even more than half of the grant to artist support.
2. Organization Support: Up to half of the grant amount is available to support the costs of the demand-building project and specific costs associated with the artist’s work at the host organization.
GrantWatch ID#: 153733
Building Demand for the Arts grants will support at least 50 partnerships between artists and dance companies, theaters, presenting organizations and/or select service organizations.
Organizations with annual expenses of $300,000 - $749,999 may apply only for grants of $55,000.
Organizations with annual expenses of more than $750,000 may choose to apply for grants of either $55,000 or $110,000.
Applicants will learn whether or not they have been selected for funding no later than November 30, 2015. First grant payments will be made to grantee organizations no earlier than January 1, 2016.
Approved projects may begin no earlier than January 1, 2016, and must be completed within 36 months, but no later than June 30, 2019.
Please Note: Funded organizations must host the artist/s on-site for a minimum of 90 days.
