Indiana Arts Commission Awards Arts Organization Support Grants


Arts Organization Support grants provide annual operating support for the ongoing artistic and administrative functions of eligible arts organizations that align with IAC funding priorities.  The applicant does not request a grant amount. The grant amount is based on available funds, the number of eligible applicants, application score, the organization’s budget size (based upon the total cash revenue from the organization’s most recently completed fiscal year, minus capital), equity funding priorities, and budget size policy (IAC grant awards are no greater than 20% total revenue).

Applicants that are funded in this program will be funded for two years (Fiscal Years 2024 and 2025 – July 1, 2023- June 30, 2025).  Those that are not funded this year are welcome to apply to Arts Project Support in 2024 for funding in FY25. The application is open between January 4th, 2023 and March 9th, 2023. The Arts Organization Support program will be open every other year.

AOS Program Priorities

To support arts organizations that:

  • Have the capacity to carry out their work
  • Provide quality arts and educational activities to the public
  • Include community input in program development and delivery
  • Demonstrate commitment to IDEA (inclusion, diversity, equity, and access)
  • Demonstrate service to those that traditionally lack access (low-income, individuals with disabilities, persons of color, etc.)
  • To ensure equitable access to AOS funding by prioritizing awards to organizations:
  • With the least access to other funding opportunities due to geographic location.
  • Historically excluded or marginalized defined as organizations led by and serving communities that include: Black/African American, Latino/a/e, Asian and Asian American, Arab, Native American, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, North African; as well as LQBTQIA+; people with disabilities; and women.
