Grant Guidelines, Applications Available Online

November 14, 2011

NASHVILLE - The Tennessee Arts Commission has announced that guidelines and applications are now available online ( www.tn.gov/arts) for several Fiscal Year 2013 grant categories (fiscal year begins July 1, 2012 and ends June 30, 2013).

Applications are accepted through the Commission's eGrant system.

Grant categories include: Arts Access (AA); Arts Education (AE: Artist-in-Residence, Community Learning, Funds for At-Risk Youth, and Teacher Training); Arts Project Support (APS); Rural Arts Project Support; Cultural Education Partnership (CEP); Major Cultural Institution (MCI); and Partnership Support (PS).

Each year the Commission conducts competitive grant making activities, open to nonprofit, chartered in Tennessee organizations, and entities of government who present and produce arts events and activities. In general, all grants must be matched by the recipient (one dollar matched by one private-sector dollar). Applications are reviewed and evaluated by citizen advisory panels or out-of-state evaluators.
