Overview

The Regional Initiative Grant (RIG) program provides funding to arts organizations in order to ensure all Indiana citizens have access to quality arts and cultural activities. RIG programs include:

  • Arts Project Support and Mini grants
  • Arts Operating Support I 
  • Arts Operating Support II 

These grants are managed through the Regional Arts Partners, which are community-based Indiana organizations that focus on providing better access to a variety of arts services within their designated counties. All applications to these programs should be submitted through the IAC's online grant system, but other details such as payments and contracts are handled through the Regional Arts Partners.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Program guidelines and reporting deadlines vary by region. Please contact your Regional Arts Partner for more information about the following RIG programs.
