Placeholder Image
Grant applications are now available for the Grassroots Arts Program through Golden Isles Arts and Humanities Association, the designated re-granting agency for the Georgia Council for the Arts. Deadline for the state-funded arts-in-communities program is Sept. 12.
The purpose of the Grassroots Arts Program is to help fund community-based arts projects in every county in the State of Georgia.  The Georgia Legislature has been appropriating GAP funds since 1993 in an effort to expand arts experiences and opportunities at the hometown level. GIAHA serves as the re-granting agency for the Georgia Council for the Arts for seven counties in Southeast Georgia: Bryan, Camden, Glynn, Liberty, Long, McIntosh and Wayne.
Programs and projects eligible for funding include but are not limited to arts festivals, folk art programs, theatre and dance performances, visual arts exhibitions, concerts, film programs, mural projects and other art services. For more information on eligible projects or to receive a grant application, please contact GIAHA at 912-262-6934.  Applications are also available on the web at
GIAHA also will be hosting a GAP grant-writing workshop for new and returning applicants Saturday, Aug. 2 from 1-3 p.m. at the Brunswick-Glynn County Library on Gloucester Street in downtown Brunswick. Led by Heather Heath, executive director of GIAHA, and Candice Wilson, GAP coordinator, the workshop will provide more information about the Grassroots Arts Program and answer any questions about eligible projects, as well as assist with preparing the grant application. Reservations are requested for the workshop. Please call 912-262-6934 or email to RSVP.
