Reminder: All Annual Grant Applications Are Due in January

By Hal Partlow, Associate Director of Grants –

 ALL Fiscal Year 2019 Annual Grants applications are due in January. See the schedule below for the application deadlines for each Annual Grant category.

Once grant applications are submitted online, they will be reviewed for eligibility and completeness. Applications are assigned to program directors by artistic discipline and/or grant program. The assigned staff member reviews the application in depth and notifies applicants if additional information is needed in advance of the Advisory Panel or inter-board committee meetings. PS, APS, RAPS, AE-AI, AE-CL, FAY, AE-TT, AA applications are sent to Advisory Panel members. MCI, CEP and IAF applications are sent to out of state adjudicators. All annual grant applications, with the exception of IAF, are reviewed at a meeting convened at the Commission’s office which is open to the public. At Advisory Panel meetings, staff members summarize each application focusing on standardized Commission review criteria, as published in each category guideline, prior to comments, discussion and final scoring by the panelists (see schedule at the bottom of this post).

If you need any assistance with your applications, reach out to your program director or contact me. We are here to help.
