Regional Artist Project Grants provide awards for individuals and groups of unincorporated artists to pursue projects that further enhance their artistic development. The RAPG is open to eligible artists in all disciplines and provides an all or nothing grant of up to $2,000 to pay for one professional development or to purchase or rent one piece of equipment.
The Union County Community Arts Council recognizes that Union County has a strong arts community that can benefit from these grant funds. As an arts council, our goal is to assist artists by providing services and opportunities that help them evolve as artists.
