Youth Arts Engagement Grant Program

Arizona Commission on the Arts

Relevent Country: United States of America

The Arizona Commission on the Arts has announced an open call for the Youth Arts Engagement Grant Program.

Funding Information

Organizations can request $5,000 to $7,500.

What is it?

Youth Arts Engagement Grants support projects focused on young people ages 24 and under that occur outside of traditional school hours (before/after school and/or during school holidays/ breaks) and are rooted in arts learning practices: sequential hands-on learning through the arts. Projects should provide creative expression in safe and nurturing environments, honor youth voices, narratives and perspectives, and utilize the assets of the community being served.

Award Amount

  • Organizations can request $5,000 to $7,500.

Eligible Expenses

Grant funds may be used for any of the following (this list is not comprehensive):

  • artist, consultant, and other fees
  • administrative costs related to the project
  • materials or supplies
  • in-state travel costs
  • technology
  • documentation
  • evaluation

Grant funds cannot be used for any projects, or days of a project, that take place before the start date of the cycle in which they are submitted, and/or after the end of the fiscal year (June 30, 2023). If your full project timeline starts before or ends after the funding period, you are still eligible to apply and should articulate the full timeline in your application, but should only request and use grant funds for project activities taking place within the funding period.
