Regional Artist Project Grant

2016-2017 Application Materials Now Available

The Regional Artist Project Grant (RAPG) provides financial support to committed, gifted individual artists and small, unincorporated groups of collaborating artists. The grant (up to $1500) is designed to support projects that will advance the applicant’s career in demonstrable ways. Career development opportunities may arise at different stages of a career; therefore, the grant is open to emerging and established artists in dance, drama, film/media, literary/playwright, music and visual art.

Application Workshops

We recommend that an applicant attend a grant workshop and review both their proposal and support materials with the appropriate staff at their local arts council’s office. United Arts and partner councils are available to help applicants submit complete and competitive proposals. Awarded projects may receive full or partial funding. Applicants are not required to match the grant award. All else being equal, a proposal showing a serious financial commitment from the applicant will be reviewed more favorably than one that does not.
