American Rescue Plan Act Artist Grant in the US
The Montana Arts Council is seeking applications for its American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Artist Grant to provide funds to Montana-based individual artists and artist collectives to carry out specific projects and activities.
Funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) through the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), funds are dedicated to supporting presentations, performances, workshops, research, and/or the creation of artwork.
Award amounts range from $2,500 to $10,000.
Awards will be paid in two disbursements: half upon signing the grant agreement and half upon approval of the final report. No match is required.
A project can be fully funded with the award.

Note: any tax implications for a group application will fall on the lead applicant.
