Grants averaging $250 to USA and territories artists for creative projects. Funding is intended to assist with expenses such as recording studio time, performances, art supplies, exhibits, project-related expenses, and residencies. This grant is open to artists of any discipline. Funding is intended to support artists who demonstrate passion and excellence in their craft.

Artists may also apply for community service projects which are artistic, and 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).

IACA believes the arts are essential to the health and vitality of communities and the nation, and is passionate about supporting artists in creating. IACA recognizes the great need for support, and that receiving funding can sometimes be a complicated process. This is why it decided to assist artists and why the application process has been made simple. This program was started in honor of every artist who has ever impacted the life of another.
