The Idaho Commission on the Arts is accepting applications for American Rescue Plan Act grants for Idaho-based nonprofit arts organizations until 11:59 p.m. May 9, according to a press release.

By the deadline, the applicant must have been operating as a registered nonprofit or unit of local, county, tribal or state government for at least one year, and must have submitted all final reports for any past grants from the Idaho Commission on the Arts.

Support is limited to:

  • Salary support, full or partial, for one or more staff positions
  • Fees/stipends for artists and/or contractual personnel for services they provide for specific activities in support of an organization’s general operations
  • Ordinary facilities costs

Applicants that received Entry Track or Public Programs in the Arts grant funds from the commission during the 2022 fiscal year will receive an additional award based on a funding formula. All other approved grantees will receive a flat amount of $2,500.
