The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts has taken this action in response to our current budget situation. As you may know, the budget passed by the Legislature included a cut to the Arts Council’s State appropriation, which will result in a concomitant loss of Federal funds (Federal funds must be matched 1:1).
We are truly sorry about the impact this suspension may have on programs in your community. Last year, $63,750.00 was awarded to 18 organizations for arts programming in communities throughout New Hampshire. We will reevaluate reinstatement of the grant category once a budget agreement is reached and funding is secure.
We encourage you to contact your State Legislators and tell them how this funding has positively affected your organization and community in the past. Please click here for a full list of Senators and Representatives. Thank you!
Questions or concerns should be directed to Arts Council Director Ginnie Lupi at email@example.com or 603-271-8418.
Deadline: July 31, 2015 (for projects between November 1, 2015 - September 30, 2016)
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.
