IACA Grant Program
Grants to Individual Artists for Creative Endeavors in the Literary, Performing and Visual Arts

Grant Program:
We believe the arts are essential to the health and vitality of our communities and our nation. We are passionate about supporting literary, performing and visual artists in creating. We recognize the great need for support, and that receiving funding can sometimes be a complicated process. This is why we decided to do what we can to assist you and why our application process has been made simple.

IACA Mini-Grants generally average $250, and are intended to assist with such things as: art supplies, recording studio time, exhibits, performances, project related expenses, etc. This is our way of planting seeds that we believe will continue to grow.

This program was started in honor of every artist who has ever impacted the life of another. In honor of our teachers, our mentors, and even those who have deeply touched our lives from afar, we encourage you to keep living your dreams with passion. Keep changing the world for the better. We believe in you and we support you!
