Nearly $3 million can do a lot of good and for Delaware’s art scene, it is going to do incredible things. The Delaware Division of the Arts is investing in more than 100 arts and community organizations that will serve Delawareans statewide with programming and services, education, along with marketing and promotion.

 

This first round of funding is going to the following organizations:

  • General Operating Support
  • Project Support
  • Arts Stabilization
  • StartUp and Education Resource grants.

“Every year I am impressed by the vitality of the arts in Delaware. The applications that come in from communities throughout the state represent the finest in arts programming and services. From art leagues, museums, choral groups, and symphonies, theaters, dance companies, and film, Delaware’s offerings are tremendous. We are fortunate to live in a state where the elected leaders recognize how this investment in the arts serves our communities, our schools, and our local economies,” said Paul Weagraff, director of the Delaware Division of the Arts.

 

Grant review panels made up of Delaware artists, arts educators, arts and nonprofit organization administrators, corporate and fundraising managers, and interested community members, provided an impartial peer review of these grant applications based on established evaluation criteria, reflecting the importance of having diverse public and expert participation in the grant-making process.
The awards include:

  • General Operating Support for fifty-nine (59) arts organizations.
  • Project Support for twenty-five (25) community-based organizations that provide arts programming for children and adults; economically disadvantaged and at-risk students; individuals and family members dealing with cancer; and young children and community members from across Delaware.
  • Five (5) Arts Stabilization Fund projects that support capital improvements and repairs to facilities owned by arts organizations.
  • StartUp Support for one arts organization seeking to strengthen its management capacity prior to applying for general operating support.
  • Thirteen (13) education-based partnerships between Delaware’s schools, arts organizations, and artists that provide teacher training and standards-based arts learning experiences for pre-K-12 students statewide, in alignment with the new Delaware Standards for Learning in the Visual and Performing Arts.

 

Funding for the Delaware Division of the Arts comes from the Delaware General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts, an independent federal agency. In addition, the funds for capital improvements grants-provided by the Arts Stabilization Fund-are has drawn from the Arts Consortium of Delaware, Inc. (ArtCo) endowment. A complete list of grants for the first round of Fiscal Year 2020 can be found here.

The Division also awards grants on an on-going basis throughout the year, including Arts Access grants, Artist Residencies, Individual Artist Fellowships, Individual Artist Opportunity grants, and TranspARTation grants.

 

Interested members of the public, artists, arts organizations, and community leaders are encouraged to visit the Division’s website to learn more about these programs. Notification of grant deadlines, guidelines, and applications, as well as technical assistance opportunities, are published in the monthly e-newsletter, Arts E-News.
