The Northwest Arkansas Council's Regional Arts Service Organization has launched a Bridge Fund for arts and culture organizations in our region. The fund is targeted to underserved organizations with budgets below $3 million. Applications are due by April 30, 2020.
A new Bridge Fund has launched for small to mid-sized arts and culture nonprofits in the region, challenged by COVID-19. The grants are provided through a partnership with the Regional Arts Service Organization (RASO) at the Northwest Arkansas Council and the local arts community.
The program, supported through a grant from the Walton Family Foundation, will provide grants between $10,000 and $50,000 per organization for transition and long-term planning.
The application period is now open.
The deadline for submission is Thursday, April 30, 2020 at 5 p.m.
RASO staff will review applications and provide notice of all grant decisions between May 8 and 15. If granted funding, all proposed projects must be completed by Dec. 31, 2020.
