The Local Arts Program Grant enables the New Jersey State Council on the Arts (NJSCA) to support local arts development within each of New Jersey’s 21 counties through a competitive grant application process by awarding funds to officially designated county arts agencies (CAAs). The Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission is the agency officially designated in Hunterdon County to apply for, receive and administer this annual Local Arts Program Grant/Re-grant program. The annual total grant award supports local arts development through planned programming and other services provided by the Cultural & Heritage office and re-grants through a formal application/independent peer review panel process to support eligible local arts organizations and other non-profit organizations within Hunterdon County that provide public art projects/programs, services and development. Grant awards are competitive and seek to encourage artistic excellence at the local level.
2024 LOCAL ARTS PROGRAM (LAP) GRANT APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED.
2025 APPLICATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE SPRING OF 2024.
Made possible with funds from the Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
