The applicant can be a non-profit organization or municipality operating in Cumberland County presenting a cultural arts activity. A group of artists or an individual artist may apply for a mini-grant as long as the applicant is based in Cumberland County and the funded project will occur in Cumberland County. Organizations who are ineligible to receive funding in other Arts Council grant categories due to unfulfilled grant requirements may not apply. You may only apply for one (1) grant in 12-month period.
Mini Grants fund projects in all cultural art forms that will be completed in a six (6) month period. Projects that the Arts Council’s Project Support Grants Panel has reviewed twice and not funded are not eligible for Mini Grants. Fundraisers for non-arts and cultural nonprofits are not eligible for mini grants.
A mini Grant will be no more than $1,250. Grants may also be submitted for space usage in the Arts Center. The Arts Center contains multi-use spaces for meetings, receptions, workshops, rehearsals, exhibitions and performances. As part of your Mini Grant request you may ask for the use of these spaces for limited time for a particular project.
A Mini Grant application may be submitted anytime, however applications will only be reviewed on a quarterly basis (July, October, January and April). Grant applicants may be asked to present in person to the Mini-Grant Committee which will meet quarterly.
