The Project Support Program provides funding to nonprofit arts organizations, arts groups, community service groups, nonprofit organizations, tribal or local governments that seek to produce arts programming for public audiences in Washington State.

Midsized Arts Organizations with annual operating budgets of $200,000 to $1 million or Local Arts Agencies* may apply in Level B. A copy of your organization’s last completed-year, board-approved, operating budget showing annual cash income is required to confirm eligibility.

All applicants must document a minimum one-year history of arts and/or relevant programming produced as an organization or group. Project Support grants require 1:1 matching funds by the applicant. Funded projects must be accessible to the public.

*Local Arts Agencies
A Local Arts Agency (LAA) may apply for a Project Support grant (funding Level B). A LAA is a local nonprofit organization officially designated by a local government as an LAA or is a department of a municipal, county or tribal government whose purpose includes arts and culture (such as a Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Departments). LAAs provide service-based, participation-based and/or advocacy-based activities within a defined geographic area and are generally non-discipline-specific. Activities provided by LAAs have a community-wide reach and serve to enrich the quality of life in local communities by increasing public access to, and participation in, the arts. Applicants must provide documentation of official designation as an LAA and have a minimum of one year history established by ordinance or legislation, as an agency, department or unit of city, county, tribal or state government.
