Arts in Health Project Grants

(Project Dates: August 1, 2023 – September 30, 2024)

Grant Coordinator: Lisa Burk-McCoy
(603) 271-0794

Match will not be required for FY24 grant applications

The Arts in Health project grant category responds to the Arts Council’s recognition that arts and culture facilitate the physical, cognitive, and social -emotional aspects of individual healing, and that when applied to public health, promote healthy environments and policies in communities by promoting empathy, awareness, and social cohesion through shared narrative and aesthetic experiences. Two tracks are available for this category: Health & Healing and Public Health.

Arts in Health Project Grants support arts activities that occur in community spaces and health-based facilities; the latter may include hospitals, social service agencies, rehabilitation/ recovery centers, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, adult day centers, senior centers, veterans’ homes, hospice/grief programs, and correctional facilities.
