Grant Programs at the Arts Commission to Focus on Community Engagement, Fiscal Management, and Quality Programming and Services for Arizonans

In response to economic realities and national funding trends in the nonprofit arts and culture sector, the Arts Commission is re-imagining its investment in arts organizations and schools, to align with the agency’s grantmaking objectives, strategic plan and enabling statutes.


  1. To refocus agency grantmaking such that the primary constituents meant to benefit from the State’s investment in the arts and culture sector are the citizens of Arizona, the taxpaying public.
  2. To incentivize best practices and innovative strategies which prioritize fiscal ingenuity and encourage broad community participation and engagement.
  3. To ensure that the state’s investment in the arts and culture sector reflects Arizona’s diverse population and evolving demographics.
