Community Arts Program Grant

Guidelines and application:

The Community Arts Program Grant provides up to $5,000 in operating support funds to Eugene’s small and mid-sized nonprofit community arts organizations. The primary goal of the Program Grant is to support nonprofit arts organizations in their strategic development and organizational goal fulfillment. The most competitive applicants are arts organizations who have arts as the core of their mission and provide public access to ongoing, sustained, artistic programming, and outreach programs or services in Eugene.

Community Arts Project Grant

Guidelines and application:

The Community Arts Project Grant provides up to $2,500 to individuals, collectives, or organizations for projects that emphasize accessibility to underserved audiences and provide arts programming that takes place in Eugene. Proposals might include exhibits, performances, festivals, workshops, events, programs, and other arts and culture projects. The most competitive proposals demonstrate community impact and clear access to underserved and underrepresented communities whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by race, ethnicity, economics, or disability.

Artist Grant

Guidelines and application:

The Artist Grant provides up to $2,000 to support individual artists, performers, and creatives of all disciplines. Artists can apply for one of three funding areas:

  • Production: to move forward a new creative endeavor that contributes to artistic development, professional growth, or accessing new career opportunities
  • Development: to engage in administrative or artistic learning, skill-building, or professional development that contributes to improved business or artistic practice
  • Investment: to bolster artistic business capacity through equipment or supply purchasing, staffing, or other operating expenses
