FY 2017 Creative Communities Phase 1 Application Now Available

The Creative Communities grant program has been revised into a two phase application process. To keep it simple, the first phase will ďvetĒ your project idea.  If itís strong, youíll be invited to put in additional hours with the idea that you have a good chance of being funded.  If itís not strong, you wonít have to invest additional hours on a long shot.

The purpose of the Creative Communities grants program is to encourage arts education and community arts development in Wisconsin. It provides support for projects that further the Arts Boardís goals in the following three areas:

  • Arts Education
  • Folk and Traditional Arts
  • Local Arts

Applicants are welcome to submit one proposal to one of these three categories per year. Applicants to the Creation and Presentation program are not eligible to apply for a Creative Communities grant.

February 5, 2016 at 3:00 pm is the deadline for all Phase 1 applications.

Please click here for the Creative Communities Phase 1 guidelines and application form.

We will offer a general Question and Answer session via telephone conference call for all applicants to the Creative Communities grant program on Thursday, January 28 from 12:15 pm until 1:00 pm.

Participation is NOT required, but if you would find it helpful, please bring your questions - general and specific - and join us a few minutes before the start time.  Phone number and access code are located on the Creative Communities grant page.
