ArtsKC Grants are investments in people, programs, and projects that make the arts more accessible, sustain a vibrant arts community, and recognize excellence, innovation, and entrepreneurship in the arts. Visual, dance, music, theater, poetry, and interdisciplinary art are our focus.

Ovation Grants are for nonprofit arts organizations with a broad reach and impact. These organizations serve our region with performances, programs, and exhibitions that have a combined attendance of over 2 million annually.

Catalyst Mission Grants are for organizations whose primary purpose is the arts.

Catalyst Project Grants are for arts, cultural, or other nonprofit organizations conducting a specific arts project.

Inspiration Grants are project grants for individual artists or small groups of artists. Ambitious projects of risk, growth, and change for the artist while making a positive impact on the community are the highest priority for these grants.
