FY2023 ANNUAL GRANTS GUIDELINES
Applications for Annual Grants are currently closed. Organizations interested in Missouri Arts Council funding should consider applying for Express Grants—see section below.
FY2023 EXPRESS GRANTS GUIDELINES
We are currently accepting applications for Express Project and Express Touring programs for FY2023 (July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023).
For Express Grants, applications are accepted and award amounts are determined on a rolling basis throughout the year. The deadline is the first Monday of the month, two months in advance of the month in which the project incurs expenses. For example, for a project that incurs expenses in May, the application must be received no later than the first Monday in March. If the first Monday is a holiday, the deadline is on Tuesday. We encourage organizations to submit applications early.
FY2023 FORMS FOR GRANT RECIPIENTS
The Interim Report, Grant Agreement, and Final Report are located in our Online Grants Application and Management System.
The invoice must be typed. Handwritten forms will not be accepted. Using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, click on the relevant link to access the fillable PDF. Save the document on your computer, then complete the form you have saved on your computer. (If you enter information directly from the link without first saving the form, all the data will be lost.)
We are not accepting new applications for the Missouri Touring Performers Directory for FY2023 (July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023). To learn when FY2024 applications become available, we recommend that interested artists sign up for email notifications about our programs. The sign-up form is in the lower right-hand corner of every page of this website.
School Touring Qualified
Applications to become School Touring Qualified are still being accepted and are accepted throughout the year. The selection process for becoming School Touring Qualified is independent of the process for being listed on the Missouri Touring Performers Directory. Applicants for School Touring Qualified need not apply for or already be listed on the Missouri Touring Performers Directory.
