SALT LAKE CITY — Want to help your organization or group snag a matching grant from the Utah Arts Project? Now’s the time to apply for grants that range from $500 to $2,000 for groups with an equivalent cash match.

Arts Project Grants enable organizations and groups, whose primary mission may or may not be arts-based, to provide unique arts programs and opportunities to their community.

Last year, over $65,000 in Arts Project funding was awarded to groups around the state by the Utah Arts & Museums. The first round of Arts Project Grants is now available for 2017; the application deadline for the grants is Friday, March 24.

Examples of projects that might be funded include festivals, exhibitions, concerts, creative place-making endeavors tied to community revitalization, or other innovative public presentations that advance the arts.

For questions or assistance with the application process, contact the Community Arts Coordinator at 801.236.7541.
