Grant Programs For The Individual Artist?

Please do not let people convince you that there are no grant programs for the individual artist! There is one grant program that is open to artists in one of the major cities. These grant awards range from $1000 to $5000 and they go to the individual artist. Some of the requirements are that you be at least 18 years of age and you must be a resident of the city. For this particular grant program the deadline is March 15th but you can find out more information about this grant program by calling the phone number that is specified or by going to their website.

One of the interesting things about this particular grant program is that the city itself is providing free grantwriting workshops to help the artists that want to apply for this grant program. The website provides a phone number and the applications are provided online.

So don't let anyone tell you that there are no grant programs for individual artists because they are wrong.
