Funding

Local and national funding opportunities for artists and arts and culture organizations, including RACC grant listings.

We do not upload files with notices but enter an abbreviated form and then direct viewers to the organizations website. So we prefer short descriptions with contact information and deadline, that we can easily paste into our site.  To find out more about listed items, please use the contact information for that notice. Do not contact RACC, unless it is a RACC opportunity.

This service is free to the public.To submit a notice for this page, email the listing to mbauer@racc.org.
