Arts in Education Program Grant Overview
Applications Accepted Jan. 13 – Feb. 28

The Arts In Education Program is designed to support artists, arts educators and organizations that provide high-quality arts and cultural activities to youth in public educational settings from kindergarten through high school. These programs or projects may include, but are not limited to: arts instruction, arts integration improvements, artist in residency, in-school performances, field trip experiences, arts integration curriculum development, creative place making, as well as professional development. An emphasis should be placed on providing sequential instruction to deepen student or staff learning about the subject and experience. The Arts in Education Program will not offset the responsibilities of each school in providing its students an excellent education, but will support projects that enhance the learning that is already occurring.

Teachers and Parent Teacher Associations are eligible to apply for a specific school program. Funding may not be attributed to school personnel, faculty and/or general art supplies or equipment.

Funding is distributed in five categories: School-Based Projects, Artist in Residency Projects, Community-Based Projects, Public Art Partnership Projects and Professional Development. Funds are awarded to artists, arts educators and nonprofits that demonstrate a significant and positive impact on student academic achievement through increased arts and cultural access.

County Arts Grant Program Overview
Applications Accepted Jan. 13-Feb.28

The County Arts grant is designed to support organizations that provide high-quality arts and cultural activities that enhance the quality of life in Prince George’s County and reflect the collective creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of the County’s arts, humanities, and cultural sectors. Organizations must have a 501(c)3 nonprofit tax-exempt status.

There is a 1:1 cash-matching requirement, designed to assist fundraising by leveraging funding from additional sources. Organizations can receive a grant up to $5,000.

Artist Fellowship Grant Overview
