Grant Description

Grants to Maryland nonprofit corporations and government entities including parks and recreation departments and schools in eligible regions for arts activities that benefit local residents. Funding is intended to support equal access to inclusive and diverse arts activities for citizens and visitors to Talbot County.

Talbot Arts has a special interest in programs that bring the arts to underserved communities, including people in healthcare settings, the economically disadvantaged, seniors, and those with special needs. The proposed arts activity must primarily benefit Talbot County residents and guests.

In deciding on applications, the Arts Council is guided by:

  • The artistic merit of the proposed activities. 
  • Organizational effectiveness – the ability of the applying organization to carry out the activity
  • Service to the community – how well the proposed activity or program will serve the students, residents and guests of Talbot County

All activities supported by Arts Council grants must be open to the public and accessible to persons with disabilities in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
