Our Fast Track Arts Grants provide a single year of unrestricted general operating support 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. Grant amounts will be determined as a percentage of annual expenses and

do not exceed $25,000.

Arts organizations with annual expenses over $500,000 must complete our two-step process, beginning with our letter of inquiry form


These requests can be one- or two-year, and can be for project or general operating support.


The application window for submitting letters of inquiry will open three times annually. The first application window is October 1-22, 2021. Dates for 2022 application windows will be posted soon.


Once an LOI is submitted, it will be reviewed for eligibility and alignment with our current funding priorities. Select organizations will be invited to submit a full application.
