Working with us during this time

The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts is fully operational but some staff are working remotely. We are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services and will update via social media and email as things change.

For now, the best way to reach NHSCA staff is by email or direct phone line – our main phone number isn’t always answered. We are conducting meetings by phone or video conference; contact the staff member you are meeting with for more details if necessary.

Current and future grantees

NHSCA staff are working hard to be responsive to current grantees as we navigate this new world. Please refer to this FAQ for more detail and grant coordinator contact information.

At this writing we are not making any changes to the FY21 grant/opportunity cycle; all categories are open and deadlines firm. That said, there may be changes when we learn more about the pandemic’s governmental financial impact; there may be changes to Arts Council allocations from both the National Endowment for the Arts and the State of New Hampshire. We will keep you informed as we learn more.
