|Funding or Award Criteria||
Grants for Arts Projects support exemplary projects in artist communities, arts education, dance, design, folk and traditional arts, literature, local arts agencies, media arts, museums, music, opera, presenting and multidisciplinary works, theater and musical theater, and visual arts.
This category supports the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and the strengthening of communities through the arts. Within these areas, innovative projects are strongly encouraged. Typical projects include the commissioning and development of new work, the presentation of performances or exhibitions at home or on tour, arts education projects for pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade students, the documentation and preservation of significant artworks or cultural traditions, the publication and dissemination of work important to the field, innovative uses of new models or technology to create work or engage audiences, and the professional training of artists.
Grants generally range from $10,000 to $100,000.

Age alone (e.g., youth, seniors) does not qualify a group as underserved; at least one of the underserved characteristics noted above also must be present. Grants are available for professional arts programming and for projects that emphasize the potential of the arts in community development.
This category encourages and supports the following two outcomes:
