ABC Grant Application

ABC grant applications for the 2017 Fiscal year are due July 1, 2016 4:30 pm.

Arts Build Communities (ABC) is a program funded by the Tennessee Arts Commission and administered by three Designated Agencies in the GNRC region. ABC grants offer financial support for arts projects in all disciplines such as dance, music, opera/musical theatre, theatre, visual arts, design arts, crafts, photography, media arts, literature, interdisciplinary and folk arts.

Providing support for arts and cultural projects that positively impact communities across Tennessee, the grants are designed to help effect positive change in communities through the arts. Funding can be used for arts and cultural projects which address social issues; strengthen community engagement; target youth for after-school initiatives; enhance a community’s identity or brand; add value to tourism efforts; and encourage further economic development.

Funds awarded to a single organization in this grant category range from $500 to $2,500.

In order to be eligible, applicants must be state-recognized, 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations or government entities (including public schools and libraries) and must be able to provide a dollar-for-dollar match toward the single proposed project.

In addition, the proposed project must occur between August 16, 2016, and June 15, 2017. Any organization currently receiving Major Cultural Institution, Cultural Education Partnership, or
Partnership Support funding for FY2017 is not eligible to apply. GNRC –Sumner, Rutherford,
