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.
