Technical Assistance Grants

Organizations and individual artists who need funding for special one-time needs such as purchasing materials for a small-scale project, attending a conference, or bringing in a consultant may apply for Technical Assistance. Requests may not relate to any program or project already funded or applied for in another component, and must not be eligible and appropriate for funding under any other program or category. These grant awards generally do not exceed $1,000; the minimum award is $250. A match will strengthen the application, but is not required. In communities without a local arts agency, a city, county or other appropriate tax exempt group is eligible to apply for start-up costs not to exceed $2,500 for one year only. Contact the program manager if you are interesting in applying for Technical Assistance.
