Grants of $250 and grant of $500 to USA and Territories individual artists and artist collaborators for creative artistic endeavors across the arts disciplines. Funding is intended to support community service projects, project-related expenses, performances, exhibits, art supplies, rehearsal space, recording studio time, and residencies, and anything that assists artists in the process of creating art.

The IACA Artist Mini-Grant Program is looking for passion and excellence in the artistic craft. Applicants will be asked to explain how their work is important to them and how the artist hopes it will impact others. 

Artists may also apply for  collaborative projects with other individual artists. An artist may also apply as an individual to do a program or project with a nonprofit organization (as long as the artist is not an employee of the organization or on an extended contract).
