South Shore Arts announces fy2019 funding opportunities 

As the Indiana Arts Commission's Regional Arts Partner for Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties, South Shore Arts will present three grant application workshops in January for arts organization support and art project support for programs to be conducted between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019. Arts funding is available to nonprofit Indiana arts organizations, as well as non-arts organizations providing arts programming in Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties. 

Applicants can apply for Arts Organization Support I (AOS I) or Arts Project Support (APS). (Click the links for the guidelines). Applications are due March 1, 2018 by 4:30pm EDT. AOS I is open to arts organizations with a 3-year operating income average of $50,000 or above. If you are interested in applying to AOS I but are not currently receiving an FY18 AOS grant, a Letter of Intent (LOI) is required and must be submitted by January 17, 2018, 4:30pm EDT. Grant applications are completed online at IN/gov/arts/apply.

Please note that AOSII applications are on a two-year cycle and not currently available to new applicants. Per the AOSII FY18-19 program guidelines, current AOSII grantees do not need to apply to FY19.
