Grants of up to $7,000 to Reno, Nevada nonprofit organizations for arts and cultural projects for underserved populations and youth. Applicants are required to attend a grant workshop before applying. Funding is intended to engage the local community and youth in the arts.

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.

Arts Access Project - Awards support projects that engage at least one of Reno’s traditionally under-invested populations in unique, creative activities or artmaking. Under-invested populations may include one or more of the following:  seniors, ALAANA (African, Latinx, Asian, Arab and Native American), differently-abled, new Americans, low-income, veterans and LGBTQ. 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.

Youth Arts Project - Projects funded in this category will encourage participation in the visual arts, craft, media, music, theatre, dance, folk, or literary arts through events, performances, exhibits, classes/workshops and other arts programs. Projects must be led by an artist(s) who has experience working with youth and be guided by an approach or process for teaching and / or presenting art. 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.
