Sustainability Grants for Arts Service Organizations

Application Deadline: June 10

As a Regional Arts Organization, South Arts is committed to the sustainability of arts organizations and recognizes the devastating impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is having in the Southern arts community.

South Arts will offer a limited number of $5,000 to $20,000 grants to statewide or regional arts and cultural service organizations based in our nine-state region to help sustain operations during or after the pandemic.

The goal of this grant is sustainability – helping these organizations to maintain staff and keep their doors open so that they can provide services to their wide geographic reach. Our hope is to ensure the viability of arts and cultural service organizations when leverage and impact are most critical to the larger arts community.
