Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Nonprofit arts organizations designated as federally tax-exempt under the IRS Section 50l(c)(3), units of government, or nonprofit educational institutions with a statewide-service mission statement that benefits the arts are eligible.

Pre-Application Information:

All applications and materials must be submitted by March 1st of even numbered years. Grant awards will be announced in May for the fiscal year starting July 1.

The Statewide Services Grant is not open to applications in the same way as other grants. Proposals are accepted only after discussion and agreement has been reached with the South Dakota Arts Council and staff as to the nature of statewide arts services to be provided during the fiscal year for which funds are requested. Those considering application should contact SDAC staff to initiate this discussion before applying.

South Dakota Arts Council anticipates applicants to be South Dakota Humanities Council/Center for the Book, South Dakota Public Radio and the Governor's Biannual Art Exhibition. If other organizations have questions about the Statewide Services Program, please contact the South Dakota Arts Council staff before January 1.

No more than 50% of the total costs of the service plan may be requested from the South Dakota Arts Council. Awards are based upon the written grant proposal, proposed budget and Criteria for Awarding Grants.


Term of Contract:

Statewide Services Grant recipients receive the same award each year for a two-year period pending federal and state appropriations and, therefore, need to apply only every other year. Should appropriations be increased, reduced or eliminated, second year grant awards may reflect such action.
