The Arts & Wellness Grant Program supports the use of creativity as a tool to enrich lives and enhance the well-being for our friends and neighbors in the capital region, as well as raising awareness for the powerful effects the arts can have on our health.

About Arts + Wellness Grants

  • Applications must adhere to current guidelines. Download and review current guidelines before submitting an application.
  • Once submitted, applications undergo a rigorous panel review process. Panel recommendations are sent to the Arts Council’s Board of Directors for final approval.
  • The involvement of professionally trained, experienced artists (e.g.: art therapists, music therapists, drama therapists, etc.) and/or an arts organization is essential.
