NH State Council on the Arts premieres online grant application process

The N.H. State Council on the Arts is pleased to announce that, for the first time, applicants to its grant programs may submit their applications through an online grant process.

Applying online eliminates the need for applicants to submit multiple copies of their materials, speeding up the application process and reducing the costs associated with color printing, which often accompanies applications from arts organizations and their partners.

Online applications are an option for all NHSCA grants in the coming year, but paper applications will still be accepted. Next year, all grant applications will be required to be submitted online.

For those unfamiliar with applying for grants online, several customized training materials are available, including video tutorials and written documents for every NHSCA grant program.

“The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts is thrilled to kick off its 50th Anniversary year with an online grant application portal, which will simplify the application process, increase efficiency for applicants and staff, and modernize the grant review process,” said Ginnie Lupi, director of the NHSCA. “We’re excited to provide this service to New Hampshire’s arts community and we look forward to their feedback.”

The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts is a publicly funded agency within the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources. It began in 1965 with legislation designed “to insure that the role of the arts in the life of our communities will continue to grow and play an ever more significant part in the education and welfare of our citizens.” Funding comes from state appropriations, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Conservation License Plate fund.
