The Grants Program reflects a significant commitment by the State of Nevada to support the creation of art and access to the arts for its citizens. NAC grants support the efforts of nonprofit arts and community organizations, public institutions and individual artists to make cultural activities and experience widely available to those who live in or visit Nevada.
The reach of this program is expansive - grant recipients are found in every corner of the state, and sponsor activities such as exhibitions, concerts, festivals and film series. Grant monies also support Nevada's dance, opera and theatre companies; symphonies, orchestras and choral groups, and local arts councils statewide. Though a NAC grant may be a small percentage of an organization’s total budget, the importance of these dollars reaches far beyond actual cash value - serving as a catalyst for other public and private support.
Beginning in FY13, all Nevada Arts Council (NAC) grant applications, support material and final reports must be submitted through Grants Online™ (GO™), our new online grants management system. GO™ guides you through the application process by combination of help screens, links to instructions, and checks for math and other errors. Follow GO™ instructions to register, create your applicant profile, answer narrative questions, complete the budget section, upload support material and submit the completed application. If you need help using GO™ please contact NAC staff at 702.486.3700 or 775.687.6680.
Quarterly grants support new or exemplary art projects by nonprofit arts and non-arts organizations, public institutions and artists.
