RISCA recognizes the invaluable role that Rhode Island's non-profit organizations play in creating a vibrant and inclusive place to live. RISCA aims to strengthen and sustain this sector through our grants and services to organizations, helping to ensure a lasting creative community for all Rhode Islanders.
Arts Access Grants
The Arts Access Grant (AAG) program provides small grants to new ventures, occasional arts programs, or arts and cultural organizations that do not meet the eligibility requirements of Investments in Arts and Culture (see below). The next deadline for AAG grants is October 1, 2014.
Investments in Arts and Culture
Investments in Arts and Culture (IAC) operating support grants are designed to support those organizations that produce or present annual programs in the arts and have developed a funding relationship with RISCA over time. Organizations receiving IAC support will be required to participate in the Rhode Island Cultural Data Project (CDP).
This application is open by invitation only. If you have questions regarding your organization's eligibility, please contact Lauren Faria at firstname.lastname@example.org. The next deadline for IAC grants is April 1, 2015.
