New Program! Professional Development and Consulting

Does your organization need professional support to build a new website, develop a strategic plan, or train your board members? Would you benefit from attending a conference or seminar, but can't afford registration fees? Now, there's a grant for that...!

Developed in direct response to our Council's goal of providing opportunities for the field to grow, our new Professional Development and Consulting (PDC) program assists arts organizations in building their capacity for success in two areas:

  • Professional Development: Funding will support professional growth and leadership training opportunities for individual staff members, artists, arts administrators or arts educators employed by the applying organization.
  • Consulting Services: Funding will support the hiring of consultants to work with staff to enhance the programmatic, administrative, financial or technical capabilities of the applying organization.
