Regional Arts Partner

The Regional Arts Partnership (RAP) purpose and design is structured to improve and increase service delivery by providing access to grant funding and other statewide services on the regional level.  The RAP regional system is responsive to the needs of each region and provides more direct delivery of grants, services to communities, and provides citizens a more direct role in the allocation of state resources.

Panel Recordings

In addition to the funding our Regional Arts Partners receive for being our partners they are eligible for Arts Organization (AOS) and Project Support (APS). And like our other grantees in those categories, our Regional Arts Partners go through a peer paneling process. Below are the recordings from FY18.
