Tennessee Arts Commission Arts Build Communities
The Arts Build Communities grant program is designed to provide support for arts projects that broaden access to arts experiences, address community quality of life issues through the arts, or enhance the sustainability of asset-based cultural enterprises. Projects must involve a broad audience and cannot be primarily for the benefit of students or campus at large. The maximum award request is $5,000, and a dollar-for-dollar match is required. UTC is limited to 1 proposal per competition deadline. To be considered for nomination, you must submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) in InfoReady Review by April 19. If we receive more than 1 NOI, an internal competition will be held to fill the nomination slot. Any full-time faculty or staff member may submit an NOI.
