Grant Applicants

supporting creation and access to the arts

Applying for Nevada Arts Council grants can be a highly competitive process for limited funds. The strongest applications demonstrate a thoughtful planning process that includes an understanding of the community to benefit from the proposed project, an assessment of needs, and a concise explanation of how the project was designed and how it will be funded. All applicants must read the Grant Guidelines thoroughly before beginning to work on your grant application. All Nevada Arts Council grant applications must be submitted through our online grants management system. To apply for a grant applicants must register for a Submittable account at
