RAAC Grants
Rockford Area Arts Council's
2018 Community Arts Access Grants
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 2018.

This program is 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.   

Community Arts Access Grants
Grants up to $2,500 are availabe to artists and community non-profit organizations for projects which increase access to the arts for underserved people in Boone, DeKalb, Ogle and Winnebago counties.  The grant application deadline for projects taking place in 2018 is November 13, 2017.
City Arts Action Grants
Grants up to $350 are available for artists and arts organizations in Winnebago County needing immediate funding.  Applications accepted throughout the year or until funding is depleted.
