Grants ranging from $1,000 t0 $5,000 to Hillsborough County, Florida community-based nonprofits and arts-based organizations for increased accessibility to cultural activities for rural and underserved populations. Funding is intended for arts and culture programs presented in a range of settings in the county. The Fund is committed to supporting geographic, ethnic and age diversity, as well as programs that serve veterans and people with disabilities.
The goals of the Community Arts Impact Grant Program are aligned with the Arts Council of Hillsborough County’s Strategic Plan. Strategic funding priorities include:
- Create pathways for supporting rural and underserved communities with arts and cultural programming.
- Build deeper recognition that the arts and culture are critical for community and economic development.
- Integrate arts and cultural programming and resources across the region and County.
- Provide greater access to arts and cultural opportunities by leveraging creative community partnerships.
- Increase accessibility to arts and cultural programs for diverse voices in diverse communities.
- Additionally, the CAIG program is committed to supporting cultural assets that are creating and protecting cultural equity across Hillsborough County, Florida.
- Cultural projects must be within the disciplines of dance, folk arts, literature/creative writing, media arts, music, theater, visual arts, or multidisciplinary arts forms.
- All activities funded through this program must be open to the general public.
- Projects must be designed to elevate and advance arts and culture in the community.
- Community impact through arts and cultural programming must be the primary focus of the proposed project.
A project submitted for funding does not have to be a new activity. Existing projects looking to expand to new audiences or measurably increase the program are equally competitive with new activities, provided that they support programs in communities that have limited access to traditionally structured arts programming. Projects can be small in scope and do not need to serve large numbers of people as long as they positively impact the organization’s purpose or mission, and are aligned with the funding priorities of this CAIG program.
