BCA’s 2015 Community Arts Grant & Artists for Community Grant
Opening Monday, November 17, 2014

Combined "How to Apply" Workshops starting Sunday, November 23rd

Guidelines Available at:

The Community Arts Grant (CAG) is a local arts funding program supporting projects and activities that enable Bronx communities to experience and engage with the performing, literary, media and visual arts. All projects must benefit Bronx communities and be accessible to all.
This program provides support for arts and cultural projects to community-based organizations, groups, collectives or artists. Grants range from $1,000 to $5,000. Individual artists or collectives may apply through a fiscal sponsor or apply directly if working in partnership with a community-based nonprofit organization in the Bronx. Both fiscal and partnering organizations must meet the same eligibility as all nonprofit organizations applying for this grant!

The Artists for Community Grant (FKA The Individual Artists Tier) is a competitive arts grant program.
The goals of the program are to:
1) provide funding for artists to create new work in 2015;
2) to expand the scope of local arts activity and the participation of professional artists in communities across the Bronx; and
3) Highlight the role of the artist as a community resource.
Emphasis is placed on the quality and artistic merit of proposed projects and the depth and authenticity of community experience, participation and engagement. A maximum of four individuals are selected each year to receive a maximum of $2,500.

All applicants can submit a total of three requests between the Community Arts Grant and the Artists in Community Grant. However, each submission must be for a different project, and the total amount requested for all submitted projects cannot exceed $5,000.

Attendance to at least one "How to Apply" Workshop is mandatory for all applicants.
