Guidelines and applications are available to Utah nonprofit organizations to help fund arts-related activities during 1996.

First-time applicants and certain grant category applications are due by Sept. 1. Other grant category applications are due Oct. 1.More than $1,000,000 is distributed annually by the Utah Arts Council to organizations to assist with arts projects affecting individual communities or the state as a whole. In an effort to foster self-reliance and community support, participating arts organizations must match Council grants at least dollar for dollar while also meeting other criteria.
