The Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture invites proposals from organizations to support local arts and cultural events, projects, and programs. Any non-profit organization or governmental/educational agency in the state of Colorado bringing their project to Grand Junction may apply, no individuals or businesses. The 2022 grant process is now open and closes February 1, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. A total of $45,000 is available, and events must occur between March 31, 2022, and March 31, 2023. Requests may not exceed $4,200 for projects.

The commission is interested in how each project or cultural event impacts jobs in the creative industry for the local non-profit arts and cultural community and local working artists of all types, including performing, visual, literary, and historical/heritage. As with most grant programs, this grant program helps provide employment, sales, or performance opportunities for working artists and those who work for cultural non-profits by supporting a broad range of community cultural events, exhibits, presentations, and projects. It is important to remember that the arts are an industry, and the business of art is an essential economic element of our community in all its many forms.

The 2022 grant application process is available online at gjpr.org/gjartcommission.
