The Organizational Capacity Grant supports projects that strengthen nonprofit arts organizations providing high quality arts services and programming. This grant may be used to meet a variety of arts management needs. The proposal should demonstrate how the grant will assist the applicant in strengthening their overall capabilities, effectiveness, and sustainability. Proposals may include the costs of engaging contractors who specialize in nonprofits to assist with long-term planning, marketing planning, technology, or board development. All proposals, whether to sustain established projects or programs, or to implement pilot projects, will be evaluated for both their potential to deliver opportunities to participate in high quality arts experiences for New Hampshire's citizens and to sustain high quality arts organizations in New Hampshire.
