Our Fast Track Arts Grants provide a single year of unrestricted general operating support grants to arts organizations with annual expenses of less than $500,000.


This program supports organizations that typically deliver visual, performing, media, literary, or interdisciplinary artistic programming, performances or exhibits, as well as arts services organizations. Awards will be determined as a percentage of annual expenses and

will not exceed $25,000.
