Scottsdale Arts is accepting applications for its Community Arts Grant Program, which provides funding to nonprofit arts and cultural organizations in Scottsdale and throughout the valley for projects that serve the Scottsdale community.
Grants are funded by the city of Scottsdale and administered by Scottsdale Arts, a nonprofit organization that includes Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale Public Art and Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovation.
In 2020, Scottsdale Arts awarded $100,000 to 20 different organizations for general operating support and projects during the 2020–2021 fiscal year.
The application process for this year's grant program opened online on June 1, at 10 a.m. through Submittable.
Applicants may submit grant requests by July 9 at 11:59 p.m. for activities that will take place between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022.
An all-volunteer committee of arts, community and business leaders will review the applications and make recommendations for funding to the Scottsdale Arts Board of Trustees.
All applicants must be 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts or cultural organizations that provide programs or activities within Scottsdale or for Scottsdale residents and have a three-year history of programming prior to the application deadline.
