FY 2021 Institutional/Financial Stabilization Grants for Arts Organizations

Alternating every other year with the NJ Historic Trust and the NJ State Council on the Arts, the FY21 NJ Cultural Trust grant program is a NJ State Council on the Arts year for grants.

IMPORTANT UPDATE
Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, the FY21 Cultural Trust application was recently updated to focus on priorities that would allow the Arts Council and the Trust to best serve the immediate needs now faced by the arts sector. The updated application is being reopened to all qualified arts organizations. If you previously submitted an application for FY21 funding, Arts Council staff will be in touch.

For FY 2021, a qualified organization may submit an application for an Institutional/Financial Stabilization Project: a project that addresses financial and operational challenges or helps build greater operational capacity.

If you have any questions about the FY21 Cultural Trust grant application, please contact:
Tammy Herman, Director of Programs & Services, New Jersey State Council on the Arts, at 609-292-4435 or via email at tammy.herman@sos.nj.gov.
Mary Eileen Fouratt, Program Officer, New Jersey State Council on the Arts, at 609-984-6815 or via email at maryeileen.fouratt@sos.nj.gov.
