 Vibrant Communities Grant

FY18 Vibrant Communities (VC) Grants are available for eligible organizations in counties in which no FY19 Project, Partner or Arts Education Grants have been awarded. Vibrant Communities Grants provide up to $5,000 for arts projects such as performances, exhibits, workshops, readings, demonstrations, murals, artist residencies, etc.  Eligible applicants include non-profit organizations, government entities, colleges/universities, libraries and schools.  Guidelines will be published in July 2018.


Vibrant Communities Artist List

To help applicant communities identify qualified artists, we have put together a supplement to the guidelines which lists Georgia artists and arts organizations with programs that could be covered by the grant.  Applicants are not required to use these artits, but the list is a good place to get ideas for different types of programs that could be supported by this grants.  Schools interested in applying for a VC Grant to support a school based Teaching Artist residency can also consult the Teaching Artist Registry.
