Project Grant Categories
A project is a specific art presentation, exhibit, creation of work, produced program, or event which is fully executed within a specified timeline and made available to the public. RACC offers funding for Project Grants in the following categories:
Artistic Focus: projects that demonstrate high artistic quality, innovation, creativity in programming and artist selection, and demonstrated ability by the artist or organization.
Arts Equity & Access: projects that support arts programs and services that involve direct community participation, including communities that are underserved, arts education projects, arts conferences or workshops, and community fairs & festivals.
Catalyst: an introductory process available to applicants who have not previously received Project Grant funding. The grant award amount is a fixed $3,000, and will come with enhanced RACC staff support to help recipients learn how to administer a grant. First-time applicants are not required to submit in this category, and are also welcome to apply in the Artistic Focus or Arts Equity & Access categories.
