RI Foundation Grant Deadline

(7.20) Arts and cultural organizations from the minority community have until July 20 to apply for grants of up to $30,000 from the Rhode Island Foundation through its Expansion Arts Program.

The program targets emerging organizations whose programs and mission center on the cultural practices and traditions of Rhode Island’s diverse communities. The goal is to provide the skills and tools these groups need to grow as equal partners in the Rhode Island arts and cultural sectors.

Up to four organizations will be selected to receive $10,000 annually over the course of the three-year program. Priority will be given to start-up organizations and groups that have not previously received funding from the Foundation, RICH or RISCA.

In addition, consultants will work with the groups to help them build knowledge and expertise in the areas of financial management, marketing and audience development, leadership development and strategic collaborations.

The last round of funding was awarded in 2015. The recipients were the Colombian American Cultural Society, Cape Verdean Heritage Sub-Committee, India Association of Rhode Island, and Laotian Community Center of Rhode Island.

The deadline for applications is July 20, 11:59pm, EDT. All applications must be submitted online by the deadline.
