Contract deadlines and payment amounts vary.
Artists in Schools contracts are due at least two weeks before the grant-supported event begin date, or no later than the published deadline—whichever date is earlier. Contracts received after the deadline will not be accepted and grant funds will be forfeited.
School Matching Funds
A check made payable to “United Arts” for the school’s portion of the artist’s fee must accompany each contract. Contracts that arrive without payment will be returned to the school until payment can be obtained.
Contracts and matching payment may be delivered via the postal system or by hand to United Arts Council’s office (no fax or email submissions will be accepted). Please do not staple the contract or the check.
Fully executed contracts will be forwarded back to both the artist and the school after United Arts receives, approves, and signs each document. Contracts are not legally binding unless it includes a United Arts staff member signature.
