Arts Project (formerly Arts Impact Grants)
Arts Project Grants support nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and schools in their efforts to add vibrancy to Vermont communities through projects that provide equal and abundant access to the arts. Examples of fundable projects include, but are not limited to:
- performances, exhibits, screenings, readings, fairs, public art projects, and festivals that focus on including new audiences
- public art projects that commission an artist for the creation of new work where the community is engaged in the planning, presentation, and/or fabrication
- creative experiences that are designed to include a specific group of a certain age, income, gender, race, or ability, or to encourage interaction among these groups
- accessibility accommodations that enable people with disabilities to participate in arts programs
We encourage applicants to view the list of FY2024 grantees.

Arts Impact Grants are supported in part by the Vermont Community Foundation’s Arts Endowment Fund.
