New Deadline: December 4, 2015 (for projects between February 1 - September 30, 2016)
A new deadline has been set for this program. Due to a cut to the Arts Council's state appropriation, there will be significantly less funding for this category than in previous years. This will make the category very competitive, so we encourage you to start your application early and have your narrative and budget reviewed by the Grant Coordinator. Questions about the new deadline and budget situation should be directed to Arts Council Director Ginnie Lupi at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-271-8418.
Communities benefit from a lively arts and cultural sector both socially and economically. General Project Grants for Community Engagement are designed to help not-for-profit organizations, Main Street Programs, municipalities, and schools bring arts presentations and activities into communities to enhance the quality of life for citizens, attract visitors, and help stimulate local economies through the arts. This competitive and matching grant category supports a wide range of activities.
