Introduction:Trying to find arts grants in Georgia can be challenging. However, if you read carefully and put on your detective cap, you might come across the arts funding opportunities below. In most cases, individual creatives may need to affiliate with existing nonprofit agencies or start their own in order to apply.

  • 01

    Georgia Humanities Council

    If you're affiliated with a credentialed nonprofit organization and have ideas for an arts project that would benefit the community, check out the Georgia Humanities Council (GHC) site. They offer guidelines, forms and a sample grant to help applicants understand how to fill out the forms. Click the link below for more information.

  • 02

    Georgia Council For the Arts

    A division of the Georgia Department for Economic Development, the Georgia Council for the Arts offers a free GCA eNews subscription to keep interested artists up to date on funding opportunities. Information and materials needed to apply for and manage grants are organized into two tabs on the Grants page. Click the link below for more information.

  • 03

    Hambidge Creative Residency

    If you need the peace and quiet of Mother Nature to complete a project, apply for one of Hambidge's seasonal residency fellowships. Winning creatives from a wide variety of disciplines and hometowns throughout the globe receive a few weeks in their own cabin on 600 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains, plus climate controlled studio space, vegetarian meals prepared by an in-house chef and exciting regular weeknight gatherings with the other creatives in residence that period.

  • 04

    Fulton County Department of Arts & Culture

    In the wake of the discontinuation of decentralized arts funding by the State of Georgia Legislature, Fulton County got creative with its arts programs. Reminiscent of the Works Projects Administration (WPA), their commitment to funding local arts programs serving their audience of over five million citizens now takes the form of channeling general funds into Contracts for Services. These services include art, dance, theater, writing and more. Click the link below for more information.

  • 05

    Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs

    the City of Atlanta also uses Contracts for Arts Services (CAS) to meet their cultural funding needs. In addition, Atlanta's CAS is a matching funds partner for Power2Give, an arts-oriented crowdfunding site. Click the link below for more information.




Final Thoughts

Funding opportunities still exist for Georgia arts professionals and their nonprofit organizations. The secrets to accessing them are creative research and writing skills, maximizing each project's community benefits and involvement and an eye for detail when reading requests for proposals (RFP) and preparing bids and reports. Start with these resources and you'll be well on your way to realizing your creative dreams in Georgia.
