New Funding Opportunity for Pinellas Arts Organizations and Professional Artists

Apply now to Creative Pinellas’ Pinellas Recovers grants funded through the National Endowment for the Arts. 

Creative Pinellas is excited to announce applications for Pinellas Recovers grants are now open online. Pinellas Recovers grants will help artists and nonprofit arts organizations recover from the effects of the Covid-related economic losses while responding to underserved communities.

Creative Pinellas was one of 24 local arts agencies nationwide to have been selected to receive an American Rescue Plan grant for $500,000 from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).

Pinellas Recovers is a one-year competitive grant program in addition to the annual Creative Pinellas Professional Artists and Emerging Artists grants. It will award the following:

  • 21 Individual Artist project grants from $2,500 - $10,000
  • 25 Arts Organization operating grants from $2,500 to $50,000 (based on up to 10% of the organization’s operating budget for 2019 to present)

This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit
