Support for Arts Organizations, Artists and Nonprofits

The Arts Partnership provides financial support to the people, institutions, programs and projects that contribute 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.
 
TAP also provides stipends to artists, performers and arts organizations that participate in our ArtWORKS and Community Supported Art programs and through other opportunities. We also offer technical assistance and resources that support the creative community.  
 

We try to make applying for grants as easy as possible but potential applicants may still find the process daunting. TAP’s Executive Director Tania Blanich will answer questions and work one-on-one with applicants throughout the grant-writing process, including reviewing draft applications. Questions?
