Arts Organization Support I/II

About the Program

Arts Organization Support grants provide annual operating support for the ongoing artistic and administrative functions of eligible arts organizations that align with the Indiana Arts Commission's Public Funding Imperatives. The applicant does not request a grant amount. The grant amount is based on the average of the applicant’s last three years of total cash income, panel’s ratings, number of eligible applicants, and the dollars available. There is a 1:1 matching requirement


Arts Organization Support grants are administered through Regional Arts Partners. As each region has specific requirements, it's important to download the guidelines for your region.
