Grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 to Arkansas nonprofit organizations, government agencies, schools, and higher education institutions for collaborative arts projects that reach underserved communities. Projects must involve the establishment of an open community arts-based event or the expansion of an existing arts projects that reach an underserved group.
Collaborative Project Support (CPS) grants are designed to encourage collaboration with two or more community organizations and to assist the tax-exempt lead applicants with the contracted cost of art activities that have an outreach to an underserved community group.
The grants assist with the cost of arts activities, such as presenting or sponsoring separate individual artists or arts companies selected by the applicant collaborators, subsidizing fees for technicians hired for the project, or underwriting special expenses for projects that involve the collaborators’ own artists.
A Collaborative Project Support grant may be used only for contracted administrative or artistic expenses related to the proposed event. It may not be used for general administrative expenses incurred by the applicant or any of the collaborators—which include administrative salaries/benefits, capital expenditures, or general marketing costs—or to cover artistic and technical staff salaries/benefits for the applicant or any collaborator.
