Collaborative Project Support

Collaborative Project Support

Collaborative Project Support (CPS) grants are designed to encourage collaboration with two or more community organizations and to assist 501(c)(3) tax-exempt lead applicants with the contracted cost of art activities that have an outreach to an underserved community group. The grants assist with the cost of arts activities, such as presenting or sponsoring separate individual artists or arts companies selected by the applicant collaborators, subsidizing fees for technicians hired for the project, or underwriting special expenses for projects that involve the collaborators’ own artists.

Grant awards for Fiscal Year 2018 are made for Collaborative Projects occurring between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018. Grant award payments are scheduled to accommodate the grantee’s program requirements to the extent possible.

Grant funds are supplementary to the budget of any grantee. Applicants are encouraged to secure and demonstrate broadly based financial commitments for the proposal submitted. Grant awards are based on anticipated Arkansas Arts Council revenues and can be reduced at any time during the grant period.
