The Bronx Council on the Arts 2013-2014 Community Arts Grant application deadline is Friday, October 18, 2013.
The purpose of the Community Arts Grant is to provide funds to support art projects in Bronx neighborhoods, support teaching artists doing short residencies at Bronx public schools as well as providing individual artists with funds to create new works of art.
Applications must be submitted via email. It is the responsibility of each applicant to make sure that application and support materials are free of any malicious viruses and/or not corrupt in anyway. BCA reserves the right to deem corrupt, late or incomplete application packages not eligible – no exceptions.
Eligible organizations and artists must be Bronx-based. Private or parochial schools are not eligible for the arts education category. The total monetary amount for all requests combined cannot exceed $5,000. All nonprofits must have 30% of the project expenses matched by other real cash. Only 20% of project budget can be in-kind.
Average grants range from $1,000 to $1,400, but can be higher depending on the quality of the applications and its support materials.
BCA awards these funds to artists, arts and community-based organizations based and operating in the Bronx. Projects funded range from short term school residencies, after-school arts workshops and programs to production expenses for performances and exhibitions. All applications are welcome. However, the program only awards funds directly to not-for-profit, Bronx-based organizations and individual artists applying for the Individual Artist Tier, but the individual artist must form a partnership with a Bronx not-for-profit organization. Interested nonprofits and artists should contact Americo Casiano Jr. at email@example.com or 718-931-9500 x19. Projects must be completed by no later than December 31st.
All prospective applicants are required to attend one of the following seminars below in order to be updated on the new procedures and the online application.
