Technical Assistance Grants

Deadlines - June 1 and September 1

Organizations, individual artists and folklife scholars can receive funding for special, one-time needs such as purchasing materials for a small-scale project, attending a conference, or bringing in a consultant. Requests must not relate to anything already funded or applied for in another component, and must not be eligible and appropriate for funding under any other component.

These generally do not exceed $1,000; the minimum award is $250. A match will strengthen the application, but is not required.
