Grants to Idaho nonprofits organizations, schools, government agencies, and university-based organizations to support programs and activities in the arts. Applicants are encouraged to schedule a proposal review at least three weeks prior to the deadline. The purpose of this grantmaking track is to support organizations that provide public access to arts opportunities.

Award amounts are based on a formula that considers the panel review assessment, fiscal size of the organization, and past Commission funding. Nonprofit organizations which successfully complete Entry Track review may be invited to apply for Public Programs in the Arts funding. University-based organizations are only eligible for Entry Track support.

Eligible applicants must be:
-A nonprofit, IRS tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization or are represented by a qualifying fiscal agent;
-A school;
-A unit of local, county, tribal, or state government;
-A university-based arts organization, operating under the nonprofit umbrella of the university, supplying programs to the public that are not regular course offerings, and we acknowledge that only one Entry Track application per university will be funded each year.

Additionally, organizations must:
-Have a primary purpose is the production, presentation, or support of the arts, and we can demonstrate a history of maintaining high artistic standards;
-Have at least a one-year program history operating as a public, nonprofit arts organization;
-Have a paid staff;
-Employ professional artists and compensate them according to the prevailing standard;
-Have submitted all final reports for past Commission grants.

The application deadline is January 31, 2017. Mail or hand-deliver your completed application packet by 5:00 PM on the deadline date.

Applicants are encouraged to make an appointment for a courtesy review at least three weeks before an application deadline. Staff will review your application and offer suggestions for improvement. This process does not guarantee funding, but may strengthen the proposal.
