RISCA Community Engaged Project Grants 2023 – Rhode Island


The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts is accepting applications for its Community-Engaged Project Grants Program to support arts and culture projects that are directly and actively engaged with Rhode Island residents.

Donor Name: Rhode Island State Council on the Arts

State: Rhode Island

County: All Counties

Type of Grant: Grant

Deadline: 04/03/2023

Size of the Grant: $500 to $3,000


Projects must be artist instigated and organized, outside of institutional support and structures. Open to projects of all arts disciplines, from artists and creatives of all levels, these experiences should welcome non- or new- artists to engage in making, experiencing, or learning about art as an active participant. The project should directly benefit the public in Rhode Island and/or engage a specific Rhode Island community. A deep impact on a small number of people is equally as valuable as an event that many people attend. You can apply for any amount between $500 and $3,000 – they strongly encourage you to apply for the LEAST amount of funding you need to do this project. Money is limited, and they want to be able to support as many artists as possible.

Funding Information

Grant Award will be available in between $500 to $3,000.
