FY20 GRANT PANEL REVIEW MEETING NOTICES

Please note, applicants are not required to attend grant panels, nor will absence at these meetings prejudice application review. However, the Nevada Arts Council encourages applicants to observe panel meetings in person or to listen via internet or teleconference options. Panel discussions provide insights to effective grant writing and program evaluation. Because of the number of applications and time constraints, applicants are not allotted time to address the panel. Applicants are requested to refrain from contacting panel members, individually or as a group, before or during the panel meeting process. Applicants attending the meeting as observers will not have an unfair advantage over those who are not in attendance.

NAC will conduct a panel meeting to review the applications for the FY20 Artist Fellowship Grant – Contemporary Arts (AFG)  beginning Thursday, June 20, 2019, at 9:30 am and continuing on Friday, June 21, 2019, at 9:30 am until the panel concludes its business. The public may attend the meeting at the Laxalt Building in Carson City or listen remotely via conference call.

Operating Support Grants (OSG) strengthen Nevada’s arts infrastructure by supporting general operations of non-profit arts organizations throughout the state. The most competitive applicants offer ongoing, sustained, high-quality outreach programs and arts services or artistic programming in their communities. OSG funds support general operating expenses including administrative salaries and benefits, payroll expenses, insurance, facility space rental, utilities, and contracted and professional services. Operating Support Grants are awarded on a two-year cycle. Organizations will submit a full application in even fiscal years, and an Interim Report in the following odd fiscal year. Please note, the Operating Support Grant replaces the Partners in Excellence Grant.
