What: Community Engaged Project Grant.

What: To create art projects that are directly engaged with non- or new- artists.
Amount: $500 to $3,000.

Community Engaged Project Grants (CEPG) provide grants of up to $3,000 in support of arts and culture projects that are directly and actively engaged with Rhode Island residents. 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 – we strongly encourage you to apply for the LEAST amount of funding you need to do this project. Money is limited, and we want to be able to support as many artists as possible.
