Grant Opportunities - DEADLINE :  
WESTAF Regional Arts Resilience Fund




Visit the Guidelines + Process page for eligibility information and description of our two-step process to be considered for this opportunity. 

The first-of-its-kind $10 million Regional Arts Resilience Fund is designed to help mitigate the financial threat to the sector by supporting small- and mid-sized arts organizations of all artistic disciplines in rural and urban areas that are regarded by their peers as having statewide, regional, or national impact. WESTAF will administer the re-granting of over $1.7 million in fall of 2020 through approximately 30-40 awards ranging from $30,000 to $75,000, with a few exceptional $100,000 grants.

Eligible uses of non-matching grant funds include:
-Salary support, administration costs
-Artist/contractor fees
-Technology (hardware, software)
-Facilities upgrades
-Technical assistance
-Future planning and costs related to collaboration

Through the WESTAF Regional Arts Resilience Fund, WESTAF will administer the re-granting of over $1.7 million across its 13-state region, which includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawai‘i, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. In alignment with WESTAF’s strategic vision for increasing opportunities, benefits, and resources for historically underrepresented communities in a manner that results in quantifiable and systemic change, the fund will support organizations led by and/or predominantly serving individuals from historically marginalized communities that identify as:

-Black, Indigenous, people of color (BIPOC)
-People with disabilities
-Rural/remote areas
