Ohio Arts Council Accepting Applications for Capacity Building, Building Cultural Diversity, and ADAP Grants

Ohio Arts Council Accepting Applications for Capacity Building, Building Cultural Diversity, and ADAP Grants

The Ohio Arts Council is currently accepting applications for Capacity Building, Building Cultural Diversity, and Artists with Disabilities Access Program (ADAP) grants.

The Capacity Building program supports organizations' efforts to improve business practices, or add new knowledge and skills that forward organizations’ missions. Awards may fund technical assistance projects, planning or evaluation work, staff professional development opportunities, or other initiatives that upgrade an organization’s ability to do what they do.

 Applicants may request between $1,000 and $5,000. All awards require a 1:1 cash match. All applicants must possess nonprofit status or nonprofit intent but need not be registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. 

The deadline is June 1 for activities taking place July 15, 2018 through June 30, 2019.

More details are covered in the Capacity Building grant PDF.

The Building Cultural Diversity program supports new and emerging organizations whose mission, programs, staff, and board represent culturally diverse communities. Awards support arts programming and projects that celebrate communities’ unique arts and culture or preserve a culturally significant artistic tradition or practice. 

Applicants may request between $1,000 and $3,000. All awards require a 50 percent match, up to half of which may come from allowable in-kind donations. All applicants must possess nonprofit status or nonprofit intent, but need not be registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

The deadline is June 1 for activities taking place July 15, 2018 through June 30, 2019.

ADAP provides funding that gives individual artists with disabilities—and organizations that serve them—the resources they need to further their artistic development. ADAP awards help artists with disabilities advance their artistic practices, making Ohio a more accessible and inclusive place to build an artistic career.

Grants are awarded to individual artists at both the emerging artist level ($500) and professional artist level ($1,000), with no match required. Organizational applicants may request between $1,000 and $3,000, a 1:1 cash match is required. 

More elligibility details are covered in the ADAP grant PDF.

The deadline is June 1 for activities taking place July 15, 2018 through June 30, 2019.

For all three programs, applications must be received by 5 p.m. on June 1, 2018 in order to be considered. Applications should be submitted via the ARTIE system.
