The Alabama State Council on the Arts (ASCA) is pleased to award grants to nonprofit arts organizations, schools, universities, cities and a wide range of community groups.

As a recipient of Alabama State Council on the Arts grants, we rely on you, the grantee, to help publicize the work these grants made possible. When you acknowledge ASCA in your publicity materials, citizens and elected officials learn why these funds are important to all Alabamians. To help elected officials understand what the investment of public funds for arts activities accomplishes, we strongly encourage you to contact your state senator and representative(s) and U.S. senator and members of Congress and invite them to your public program(s). And, we encourage you to write a letter thanking them and making them aware of the programs made possible by their support. Please send copies of invitations and letters to ASCA’s office.
