Illinois Arts Council Announces Individual Artist and FY23 Teaching Grants

ILLINOIS ARTS COUNCIL AGENCY ANNOUNCES FY23 INDIVIDUAL ARTIST GRANTS
INDIVIDUAL ARTIST SUPPORT
The IAS program assists Illinois artists to realize a career goal, take advantage of a professional opportunity, or to produce and present an artistic project. The IAS program represents the Agency’s continuing commitment to support the work of individual artists.
The IAS program encompasses two different tracks. Each track has specific limitations and requirements. Review each track’s guidelines thoroughly to determine which best suits your goals. Artists may apply to only one track each fiscal year.
Artist Project Track (IAS/AP) supports individual artists in the production and presentation of an artistic project. Applicants may request a maximum of 75% of the total cash expenses of the project up to $4,000. The minimum request is $500. Applicants must secure a cash match to cover the remaining costs.
Professional Development Track (IAC/PD) supports professional development opportunities related to an individual artist’s career. Applicants can request grant amounts between $500 and $1,500 with no cash match required. Applicants must secure funds to cover any remaining costs exceeding $1,500.
