Grant Description
Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to present artistic activities and promote cultural tourism. Funding is intended to provide arts nonprofits with operational support and to offer assistance with specific arts projects to nonprofits that provide community services. Eligible applicants are located in and serve in San Angelo.


  • To increase the marketing capabilities of local arts and cultural organizations;
  • To promote self-sufficiency among local arts organizations and groups;
  • To increase artistic development;
  • To encourage program and audience development;
  • To encourage joint programming and mutual support by local art organizations; and

Two categories of grants are available: Core Support and Project Support. Core Support grants are designed to enhance the activities of established nonprofit arts organizations. Project support grants are designed to assist nonprofit organizations that provide other types of community services but deliver arts programming through specific projects such as exhibits, festivals, and concerts.
