Grants Range: $1,000 - $5,000

Supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs Greater New York Arts Development Fund

Arts Fund (AF) develops Bronx artists and small arts organizations through its support of high quality arts projects that engage Bronx audiences in a diverse array of artistic works in all disciplines, genres and styles. Bronx-based individual artists, artist collectives and 501c3 arts organizations with an organizational budget below $100,000 may apply for grants of up to $5,000 that contribute to the cultural life of the borough. Individual Bronx residents and artist collectives do not need a fiscal sponsor; they may apply directly to this program. In 2018, Arts Fund distributed $121,500 to 27 artists and organizations.
