Through its grants and programs, NAC encourages creative exploration and artistic excellence from those who create, produce or present the arts. NAC grants support arts and cultural activities and experiences that are widely available to those who live in or visit Nevada – provided by a breadth of nonprofit organizations, public institutions, schools, artists and educators in all 17 counties across the state.
The NAC continues to receive more grant requests than it has money to award. Thoughtful and clear answers to Narrative questions, strong Support Material, reasonable grant requests and accurate budgets are essential elements of a compelling grant proposal.
The NAC offers a number of grant categories to serve a diverse constituency. Please read the descriptions, criteria and application requirements carefully in order to determine which grant best meets your needs as an individual or organization. Understand the specific information required for each category before attempting to start the application.
All NAC grant applications must be submitted using Grants Online (GO™) by the stated submission deadline. This includes the answers to Narrative Questions (staying within the character limit for each question), a budget section and required Support Material. If you have questions, NAC staff is available to assist you.
