The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified financial pressures and challenged the collective well-being of the creative community throughout Baltimore. In an effort to respond to the rapidly changing needs of Baltimore artists and arts organizations, the Arts Council is reassessing our grant making process and implementing the following changes to reflect a more inclusive approach to providing funding opportunities for artists/creatives and smaller neighborhood organizations. Our upcoming grant opportunities are designed to meet your needs through the implementation of: 
  • Expansive eligibility and funding accessibility for Baltimore-based artists from various artistic disciplines and underrepresented communities.
  • Simplified application process to improve the application experience and expand access for new applicants and small and volunteer-based organizations.
