Grants of up to $1,500 to Greater Lansing Area, Michigan nonprofit organizations for arts programming for youth in Ingham, Eaton, or Clinton counties.

Applicants may only apply for funds in one of the two provided categories, not both.

The Foundation is dedicated to fostering arts and culture in the capital region by providing community arts leadership, funding, educational programs, and direct support services to local arts and cultural nonprofits and artists. Committed to empowering the creative community and to cultivating partnerships that stimulate community development through the arts, the Arts Council works to promote the value of the arts as essential to building a vibrant capital region.

Grant funds may only be used to support the cost of student attendance at an arts and cultural educational program or expenses to host a free programmatic activity for underserved youth.
