Application Process

Application Workshops

Representatives must attend an application workshop if the applicant did not receive funding in the last grant cycle. Attending an application workshop is optional for current grantees unless staff requires that an organization attend. Staff recommends that any returning applicant with a new grant writer attend an application workshop. At these workshops, United Arts staff will assist applicants with the process by discussing eligibility requirements, grant requirements, and tips on how to submit a competitive application. Please review guidelines before attending a workshop.

Application workshops are held at the United Arts Council office. Register in advance for workshops to [email protected]

Application Review Appointments

United Arts staff are available for individual appointments with applicants to review drafts of application materials and to provide feedback. Appointments will be held during the month of February. 

Although any applicant may request an appointment, applicants applying in new categories are required to meet with staff. Staff may also request an appointment, attendance at which is mandatory. Applications will not be accepted from any applicant who does not meet with staff as required.

To give staff time to review draft proposals appropriately, applicants must submit a draft narrative and budget via email at least two working days before the appointment.
