RISCA Grants for Organizations
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.
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.
The IAC program does not accept unsolicited proposals.
The application is open by invitation only to pre-approved organizations.
If you have questions regarding your organization's eligibility,
please contact Adrienne Adeyemi at 401-222-3882 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

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. The next deadline for AAG grants is October
