Jackpots Grants are awarded on a quarterly schedule to eligible individuals and organizations to support new or exemplary arts projects. Jackpots are also designed to support activities that help artists further their careers. Artists must have attained a certain level of proficiency as represented in the quality of work samples submitted with the applications. 

Examples of eligible Jackpot projects for organizations include:
• Arts exhibitions, performances, readings and concerts
Sponsoring of arts related workshops and conferences
Marketing and promotional activities 

Examples of eligible Jackpot projects for individuals include:
Preparing portfolios and work samples
Presentation of work (performances, exhibitions, publications, etc.) 



Artist Fellowship recipients may not apply for a Jackpot Grant during the entire Fellowship year (July 1–June 30).
Current recipients of a Project, Development, PIE Grant, or a BETA grant are not eligible for a JackpotGrant.
Artists who work in an artistic capacity (such as artistic directors, executive directors, conductors) with an organization presently receiving a NAC grant are not eligible to apply for an individual Jackpot Grant project with their respective organizations.
Arts administrators and individuals affiliated with an organization should apply for a Professional Development Grant (PDG) to support professional development activities.
Applicants may receive one Jackpot Grant award per year. 


Up to $1,000
Individuals are not required to match Jackpot Grants.
Organizations must have at least a dollar for dollar (1:1) cash match and may not apply for more than 50% of a project’s allowable costs. In-kind contributions may not be counted toward the required match, but documentation is encouraged to demonstrate community support of the project.
