Grants ranging from $500 to $2,000 to Utah nonprofit organizations and government agencies to develop and present arts-oriented projects for the general public. Possible projects include exhibitions, festivals, creative place-making projects to promote community revitalization, and other creative public presentations that promote the arts in a community or geographic region.

The purpose of Arts Project Grants is to enable organizations and groups to develop and provide arts-based projects that are open and accessible to the general public. Although the Arts Project category is intentionally nimble and inclusive of a broad variety of ideas, funding preference is given to the following types of projects (not listed in order):

-Projects that are innovative and not part of regular programming
-Projects that create impact within the broad community or support underserved groups/populations
-Festivals, public events, and other projects that raise awareness of the public value of the arts
