The purpose of this category is to assist in the general operations of the organization, to promote organizational stability, to stimulate growth and professional development, and to increase the organization's accessibility to the general public.
NOTE: Applying in this category requires that the applicant participate in the Arizona Cultural Data Project (AZCDP) which involves creating a profile, entering fiscal year data, and printing a report required as part of this application. The initial time and effort involved in CDP is substantial and must be completed prior to applying for General Operating Support.

General Operating Support applicants do not make specific funding requests. Organizations supported through this grant category receive:
Base Awards that represent a percentage of an organization's three-year average contributed income (all sources) and earned income (Phoenix sources only); and
Merit Awards determined by the ranking an organization receives in the panel review.
Due to limited availability of funds, new organizations admitted to the General Operating Support grant category may initially receive partial awards.
