CARSON CITY, Nev. — As of Nov. 30, 2017, Nevada arts organizations can begin submitting applications for Nevada Arts Council grants for fiscal year 2019. These annual awards include: Arts Learning Project Grants, Partners in Excellence Grants and Project Grants.
The Arts Learning Project Grant is a project-based grant designed to support imaginative arts education/learning activities and long-term artist residencies that establish, expand and/or enhance lifelong arts learning and increase cultural awareness.
