ArtsWA offers several types of grants aimed at conserving and developing the state’s artistic resources.

Artists, works of art, and artistic institutions are essential to the social, educational, and economic well-being of Washington State. Our grants, in the categories summarized below, provide the seed money necessary to ensure that individual communities nurture and grow the arts.

  • Grants to organizations
  • Grants to statewide partners
  • Grants for K-12 arts in education
  • Grants for special purposes

 

We offer resources to help you with your application and with receiving your payments once your grant is awarded.

To evaluate grant applications, we use a four-step process based on the written response and support materials submitted with each application:

  • Grant applications are reviewed initially by staff for eligibility
  • Applications are reviewed by a peer panel or review committee that makes initial funding recommendations.
  • The full Commission performs a final review, approval, and determines funding amounts.
  • We provide each applicant with a written notification of the final Commission action.

 

APPEALS

If we don't fund your grant application and you want to appeal, the Washington Administrative Code (WAC 30.12.036) outlines a standard process to follow.

 

ArtsWA LOGOS

Our grant recipients are required to acknowledge the support of ArtsWA in all promotional materials for the funded event by including our logo in the materials. Our logo is available for download in the Resources section of the Grants page. Or link to the logos here:
