Lawrence Community Arts Grants / Deadline: March 6, 2018


The Lawrence Cultural Arts Commission welcomes applicants who seek to expand new arts programs, deepen community participation in the arts, engage new audiences, and encourage collaboration within their diverse artistic community.

The purpose of the Lawrence Cultural Arts Commission’s (LCAC) Community Art Grant Program is to advance the goals identified by the Lawrence community in the City Wide Cultural Plan: 1) Balance the Local, 2) Embrace All / Celebrate Community, 3) Build Places Together, 4) Build and Market a Creative Brand, and 5) Promote Lifelong Learning.

Level of Support:

Grants are anticipated to range from $500 to $5,000. Awards will equal no more than 50% of the total project or activity cost. Cost-share may be cash and/or in-kind. The online application must include current, signed letters of commitment confirming in-kind or cash contributions to the project from any third-party contributors and current letters from the named collaborators (or a representative of named collaborating organizations) confirming their participation. Applications that do not include these letters will be disqualified.
