Call for Applications
Arts Impact Grants
The Vermont Arts Council is now is accepting applications for its Arts Impact Grants.

Arts Impact Grants award up to $4,000 to support nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and schools in their efforts to add vibrancy to Vermont communities by providing equal and abundant access to the arts. To further support our creative sector, the Arts Impact Grant program is also expanding this round to include small operating grants to arts organizations.

We are especially interested in projects and organizations that respond creatively to the following:

  • Expanding access to the arts and cultural activities for all Vermonters. This might include, for example, projects that engage individuals with limited access to the arts due to age, ability, income, race, geography, or other factors.

  • Creative placemaking. We welcome projects that re-envision public spaces and strengthen community identity through the arts.

Application Deadline: June 11.

Inquiries about the Arts Impact Grant program or about using the online granting system should be made by sending an email to Meredith Bell or by calling (802) 402-4478.
