Grants averaging $250 to USA artists to support creative projects. Funding is intended to assist with expenses such as recording studio time, performances, art supplies, exhibits, project-related expenses, and residencies. This grant is open to artists of any discipline.

Artists may also apply for community service projects which are artistic, and collaborative projects with other individual artists. An artist may also apply as an individual to do a program or project with a nonprofit organization (as long as the artist is nt an employee of the organization or on an extended contract).

IACA believes the arts are essential to the health and vitality of communities and nation. IACA is passionate about supporting artists in creating and recognize the great need for support, and that receiving funding can sometimes be a complicated process. This program was started in honor of every artist who has ever impacted the life of another.
