Regional Initiative grants are a good fit for applicants that intend to use small arts-based projects to engage in a specific community matter, reflect on personal experience, and/or that bring neighborhoods together. Matching grant requests range between $1,000 and $4,000 and the funding of projects is regionally distributed throughout the state with partnership support from Regional Service Organizations.
