City of Reno Arts & Culture Project Grants are awarded to non-profit arts and culture organizations to support innovative programming. The Reno Arts & Culture Commission has shifted the project grants program from seasonal support to challenging arts and culture nonprofits to serve Reno’s traditionally under-invested populations and youth programming. There are two options for Project Grants. Nonprofit organizations or public institutions can apply for either a Youth or Arts Access Project Grant.
Allowable event costs include: personnel, artistic and production fees, space rental, travel, marketing and advertising, other operating expenses.

Projects funded in this category will encourage participation in the visual arts, craft, media, music, theatre, dance, folk, history or literary arts through events, performances, exhibits, classes/workshops and other arts programs. Expenses that qualify for funding include artist fees, public performance and exhibition costs, project-related promotion and marketing, arts consultants, guest teaching artist fees, materials, supplies, etc.
