Arts Education Grants for Organizations support projects or programs that promote learning in the arts. The Office of Arts and Culture is particularly interested in funding projects designed to integrate Arts into STEM programs (STEM to STEAM) and projects that link to the Arizona Arts Standards curricula.
The applicant must be a nonprofit arts or cultural organization. Partnerships or collaborations between arts or cultural organizations, schools, school districts, after school programs, or community-based social service organizations are strongly encouraged. Arts education programs can serve youth, seniors, or special populations identified by programs or service agencies.

Arts Education grants must be matched at least dollar for dollar by the applicant. For example, if your project has a total budget of $6,000, you will need to raise $3,000 to match a grant of $3,000. Matching funds do not need to be in hand at the time of application, but your grant application needs to provide specific information as to where the matching funds will come from.
Grant funds cannot be used for:
- construction or renovation of facilities
- feasibility studies
- capital expenditures
- reduction of debts
- lobbying expenses
- fundraising projects
- scholarship programs
- staff salaries
