Whether an individual artist, nonprofit organization, or school, RISCA has a wide range of grant opportunities to support arts and culture in Rhode Island. Types of support include: projects grants, fellowships and apprenticeships, general operating support, and more.
Note: Due to a delay in the state budget, along with expected budget cuts, we are not holding our Fall grant deadline – typically due October 1st. Our grant making is on pause until we have an enacted state budget for the current fiscal year. More information here.
