 Rockford Area Arts Council 2015 Community Arts Access Grants
and Grantseekers Workshop


The Rockford Area Arts Council’s Community Arts Access Grants are available for individual artists, arts organizations, and non-profit organizations wishing to apply for grant funding for projects in 2015. 
 
This program partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.  Additional funds come from the City of Rockford and our memberships.  Grants are awarded to individual artists, arts organizations as well as other non-profit organizations, and schools within our four-county service area of Boone, DeKalb, Ogle and Winnebago Counties.  Fundamental to the mission of the Arts Council is its goal to nurture artists and arts organizations; grants are one of several ways to address this goal. Grants are reviewed by arts professionals and community members committed to the arts.  Reviewers carefully evaluate each application according to guidelines and criteria.
 
The grant application deadline for projects taking place in 2015 is November 14, 2014.
 
Community Arts Access Grants, for individual artists, arts organizations, and non-profit
organizations.  Grant maximum is $2,500.
 
Open Admission:  Action Grants, for Rockford area individual artists or arts organizations for new projects in Winnebago County.  Grant maximum is $350.

The Rockford Area Arts Council will offer a Grant Seekers Workshop for individuals, arts
organizations, and non-profit organizations wishing to apply for grant funding for projects in
2015.  First time applicants are encouraged to attend. The workshop will be held Monday, November 3 at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Rockford Area Arts Council office, 713 E. State Street, Shumway Market Building, Rockford, IL.
