Grants

The Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo administers five grant programs for which individual artists, arts organizations, and non-profits may apply.

All granting cycles’ availability, deadlines, maximum ask amounts, and application release dates are subject to change. Eligibility for application is in a PDF with each grant. Most require an active membership with the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo.

Due to the recommendations in place because of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have designed our upcoming grant workshops to take place entirely online.
