Grants are intended as risk-capital for very small arts organizations, agencies, art collectives and groups to pilot projects that focus on 1) reaching low-income and/or ethnically diverse populations that have been traditionally underserved by nonprofit arts organizations, 2) offering active engagement in the arts in which participants are making or practicing art, and/or 3) using nontraditional arts venues such as churches, store fronts and shopping malls, or open lots and other spaces not typically designated for arts use that are easily accessible and familiar to the public.
Nonprofit, public benefit organizations with evidence of tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and not classified as a private foundation.
Organizations that have been in operation for at least three years. Organizations must have an annual operating budget of less than $100,000.
