Georgia Council for the Arts Project Grants

Grantor: Georgia Council for the Arts (GCA)
Posted: December 10, 2018
Due: February 6, 2019

The mission of Georgia Council for the Arts is to cultivate the growth of vibrant, thriving Georgia communities through the arts. Project Grants provide support for arts projects in Georgia. Projects may be one-time events, such as a festival or exhibit, or a series of events, such as a roster of classes or a series of productions. Projects with multiple components must show that there is a cohesive thread and singular goal that ties the elements together. Applicants may only submit one FY20 Project Grant application.

All eligible applicants must be located in Georgia, registered with the Georgia Secretary of State, and must have completed all requirements of any previous GCA or state of Georgia grant. Performing arts groups such as a band or a chamber music quartet organized as non-profits will be eligible to apply if a majority of the group’s members live in Georgia.

Eligible applicants must be one of the following:
  • a non-profit organization registered with the IRS
  • a government entity
  • a public library
  • a school
  • an entity within a college/university that:
    • has its own community advisory board
    • receives at least 20% of its income for the project from outside the college/university
    • is not an academic department within the college/university
    • manages its own budget.
Eligible applications must:
  • Include arts programming that is completed between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.
  • Include a one-to-one cash match in the budget.
  • Include a public component in the programming.
  • Not include programming that promotes a specific religious doctrine or political party or candidate.
