Lane Arts Council’s Artist Grant provides financial support to artists of all disciplines, demonstrating benefit to the Eugene community. Applicants can apply for funding in one of three areas:

  • Production: to move forward a new creative endeavor that contributes to artistic development, professional growth, or accessing new career opportunities 
  • Development: to engage in administrative or artistic learning, skill-building, or professional development that contributes to improved business or artistic practice  
  • Investment: to bolster artistic business capacity through equipment or supply purchasing, staffing, or other operating expenses

Applications for the 2023-2024 grant cycle are now open and due April 14th at 5:00pm.

Artist Grants are funded by the City of Eugene Cultural Services Division and administered by Lane Arts Council.

New This Year – Google Forms Submission

All applications will be received through Google Forms this year. This form will auto-calculate character count on narrative responses, allow applicants to directly upload supplementary materials, and ensure each applicant completes all required parts of the application.

Google Forms require applicants to have a Google Account in order to upload their materials. If you do not have a Google Account it is very easy to set one up. See this “How to Set Up A Google Account” guide for assistance (LINK).

NOTE: We encourage applicants to prepare all responses in a separate document to copy/paste into the Google Form for submission. Google Forms cannot be saved mid-completion. Working on responses outside of the Google Form will help with losing any progress in the case there is an error or refresh mid-submission.

If the shift to Google Forms causes you any issues or concern, please contact us at grants@lanearts.org for assistance.
