Support for Arts Organizations, Artists and Nonprofits
The Arts Partnership provides financial support to the people, institutions, programs and projects that contributes to the health and well-being of our community at large.
Our grant programs aim to make the arts more accessible to all, sustain a vibrant arts sector and recognize excellence in the arts.
Other programs support artists, culture bearers, creative works and arts organizations through stipends. Find more information in our Arts Hub.
