FY2017 ARTS LEARNING Project Grants - Arts in education-based projects that engage partners to advance teaching and learning in the arts, through quality arts engagement, arts integration, arts exploration and discovery experiences in a community setting. $5,000-20,000.

FY2017 PUBLIC ART Community Project Grants - Provides funding for community based public art projects. $5,000-$20,000

FY2017 Supporting Arts in Place (operating support) - Predominantly unrestricted operating support determined via funding calculations primarily generated from organizational data.
