Arts Facilities

The Arts Facilities program assists organizations in building or renovating facilities and spaces used primarily for arts activities. Requests can be submitted in one of the following 3 categories:

  • Planning: feasibility studies, use plans, needs assessment and other contracted work related to the intended operations of an arts facility or space
  • Designing: design work related to a specific facility or arts space, to produce renderings and/or blueprints
  • Construction: construction costs related to a new facility, renovation of an older facility and/or major capital outlay improvements to an existing facility

Organizations can apply consecutively in each category (1 application per fiscal year). Applications will be considered, and grants will be awarded in this program based on the availability of funds as provided by the legislature each year.

Please contact Community Arts & Facilities program manager Dr. Jacqueline Viskup (click here to email) for more details, including matching requirements.
