Register today for the 2020 Local Arts Grant Writing Workshop

Is your Morris County arts non-profit organization interested in receiving a grant from Morris Arts? Is your Morris County non-profit organization seeking funding for an arts project? Then this workshop is for you! 

Morris Arts is pleased to announce the continuation of the Local Arts Grant Program made possible by, and contingent upon, funding from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts (NJSCA). Morris Arts offers Local Arts Grant funding to Morris County organizations that provide the Morris County community with arts events that are artistically excellent, provide public benefit, and are accessible to the public. The Morris Arts Grant Program offers grants for general operating support and for special projects to qualifying Morris County arts organizations, as well as non-profit organizations that provide arts programming. Applications are reviewed by an independent panel and funding awarded on a yearly basis.

You are invited to attend the Morris Arts Local Grant Writing Workshop for the funding year 2020. We are offering two workshop sessions on two different days: an evening session on Wednesday, June 19th and a morning session on Thursday, June 20th at our Morris Arts office located at 14 Maple Avenue (3rd Floor) in Morristown. If you plan to apply for funding from our Local Arts Grant program for 2020, it is important that you attend one of these workshops. We are making some changes in the application process – so this will be relevant to all applicants.
