The Arts Council of Fairfax County, has announced the creation of a new grant program for Fairfax County non-profit arts organizations, according to the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce.
The Fast Track Grants program aims to fund one-time events or activities that fall outside the regular cycle or scope of Arts Council grants.
“The new Fast Track Grants program presents an exciting new tool for Fairfax County’s small arts organizations to quickly execute programs and services, and fund unforeseen needs,” Linda S. Sullivan, president and CEO of the Arts Council, said.
Beginning Jan. 8, the Arts Council will accept applications for the non-matching grants. Organizations with an operating budget of less than $400,000 are eligible to apply for up to $1,000. Fairfax County arts organizations may receive Fast Track Grants only once per 12-month period. No Match is required. A Fast Track Grant is paid in full at the time of award.
Applications will be internally reviewed by a panel of staff members and approved by the Executive Committee of the Arts Council Board of Directors. Applicants will be notified of their grant status within 30 days of receipt of the application.
