Cross-Sector Impact Grants

South Arts

Cross-Sector Impact Grants: Letter of Interest due March 30, 2020

South Arts seeks to provide significant support to projects developed by partners that harness the power of “Arts & …”. South Arts recognizes that as our communities continue to change, the arts play an incomparable role in addressing many of our communal and individual challenges and strengths. Further, the value of partnership, and working together across sectors, brings new opportunity, increased effectiveness, and greater depth to our collective work. Grants of up to $15,000 are available for partnerships or projects taking place between July 1, 2020 and December 31, 2021.

South Arts recognizes that as our communities continue to change, the arts play an incomparable role in addressing many of our communal and individual challenges and strengths. Further, the value of partnership, and working together across sectors, brings new opportunity, increased effectiveness, and greater depth to our collective work. Through this program, South Arts seeks to provide significant support to projects developed by partners that harness the power of “Arts & …”. 

Cross-Sector Impact Grants is open to all art forms, for partnership projects taking place in one of South Arts’ nine member states, with a priority being given to projects taking place in rural* areas. For FY21, eligible projects will continue to feature “Arts & …”, for example, arts and the military, arts and aging, arts and community revitalization. Applicants may be organizations, units of government, higher educational institutions, or artists.  

For projects that did not receive funding through this program in FY20, matching grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded. For these new projects, South Arts encourages applications from new partnerships. However, projects that deepen and expand existing partnerships may also apply. For projects that did receive funding through this program in FY20, matching grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded in order to continue or advance the project. South Arts anticipates that this category of grants will be highly competitive, and that successful applications will be fully funded. 

South Arts’ mission is advancing Southern vitality through the arts. This program addresses two of South Arts’ Strategic Goals as outlined in its 2019-2023 strategic plan.  

  • Connect artist and arts professionals in the South to resources that will increase opportunities for success within and outside the region 
  • Advance impactful arts-based programs that recognize and address trends and evolving needs of a wide range of communities in the South
