Grants Funded

Grants and services offered by the NHSCA enhance the quality of life in New Hampshire by stimulating economic growth through the arts, investing in the creativity of students, making the arts accessible to underserved populations, and preserving heritage arts.

Our grant categories are designed to meet constituent needs and serve as a public investment in the cultural life of our state. Grants are competitive; require applicants to address specific criteria; exemplify high standards of excellence in artistry and administration; and leverage private sector support in the form of matching goods and services.
