Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Kansas nonprofit organizations and government agencies for cultural programming. First-time applicants must contact program staff and all applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to applying. Funding is intended for educational and professional artist visits; cultural programming, such as exhibitions and concerts; festival activities, commissioning new work, and other cultural projects that will build community and change lives. Eligible applicants are located in Saline County.

Expected Program Outcomes:

  1. Demonstrate a commitment to artistic excellence and community involvement
  2. Support innovative projects that engage patrons and audience members as active participants
  3. Encourage development of strategic partnerships within the community to strengthen the reach of their activities.

This program will also support applications for organizational technical assistance or capacity building projects designed to strengthen existing organizations, especially when such projects utilize the expertise of recognized professionals. Applicants must describe how these projects will strengthen their programming, further their mission and benefit the community-at-large.

The Horizons Project grant strongly encourages applications that are collaborative in nature.

GrantWatch ID#: 175686

Estimated Size of Grant:

Up to $6,000.

Term of Contract:

Projects must take place during the 2022 Grant Cycle (February 1 – November 30).

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any nonprofit organization or local governmental unit in Saline County may apply. Nonprofit organizations must be incorporated and be recognized as tax-exempt by the Internal Revenue Service. All applicants must agree to abide by federal and state laws regarding civil rights, access for people with disabilities, and other non-discriminatory provisions.

Though applications may only be submitted by nonprofit organizations and local governmental units, SAH also encourages unincorporated groups to develop projects for funding. These groups should attempt to locate at least one eligible partner that would be willing to apply on their behalf and serve as fiscal agent for the grant funds. Groups seeking the services of a suitable fiscal agent are encouraged to notify the SAH department staff for assistance in the process.

Grants may not be used for general operating support.

In general, Horizons Project funds may not be used for:
- Purchase of capital items such as existing works of art, instruments, office equipment, or real property
- Extensive travel
- Tuition or scholarships to obtain an undergraduate or graduate degree
- Projects which are already completed or will be completed outside the grant cycle
- Elimination of an accumulated deficit
- Fundraisers

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline to apply is November 1, 2021, by 11:59 PM.

To be eligible for consideration applicants must submit an intent to apply to Anna V. Pauscher four (4) weeks prior to the deadline for returning applicants (by October 4) and six (6) weeks prior to the deadline for first-time applicants (by September 20, 2021).

First-time applicants must meet with staff prior to writing a grant.

Up to 20% of the project costs may be allocated for administrative expenses. In cases where a fiscal agent is used by an unincorporated organization, a fee appropriate to services (typically no more than 7-10%) provided may be allocated from the 20% of administrative costs.

Grants are awarded on a one-to-one (1:1) matching basis. Applications that show diversified matching funds from a variety of community sources will be given preference. SAH encourages applicants to charge reasonable admission fees or identify other sources of earned income where appropriate. Grant dollars are provided for underwriting the applicant’s stated purpose and are awarded for a period not to exceed one grant cycle.
