Grant FAQs & Compliance

For over 45 years The Arts Council has served the community with one driving mission: to make the arts accessible to all residents and visitors of the Brazos Valley through funding, promotion, advocacy, professional development and partnership building programs.

We are able to offer about $500,000.00 per year in grant funding to our affiliates. Below is additional information about our grant process.

Grant FAQ

How and when do I apply for a grant for my organization?

Applications are available through our online grant portal. For more information on each application, please visit the page for the relevant granting program. College Station/Bryan and Navasota Marketing and Program Grant applications will become available in early May each year. Rural Sub-granting applications will be available in January each year.

My organization is not an affiliate of The Arts Council. Can I still apply for a grant?

Granting funds are only available to Arts Council affiliates in good standing. For more information on becoming an affiliate visit the “Become an Affiliate” page under the "Get Involved" tab.

Which grant is my organization eligible for?

If your organization is located in one the six rural counties The Arts Council serves (Leon, Washington, Madison, Burleson, Robertson, or Grimes) you are eligible for the Rural Sub-granting program.

Organizations operating and programs presented within the Navasota Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) may be eligible for funding through the City of Navasota’s Hotel/Motel Occupancy Tax Revenues.

Affiliates that operate in Bryan, College Station, or Brazos County are eligible for funding through The Arts Council’s Marketing and Program Grant. Funds are provided by the City of College Station and the City of Bryan’s Hotel/Motel Occupancy Tax Revenues.

How much funding is available?

The amount of funding available varies from program to program. Rural Sub-grant recipients generally receive between $250-$2,500. Marketing and Program Grant awards vary based on program and application eligibility .

Do I have to attend a grant workshop?

Organizations applying for Rural Sub-grants are not required to attend a grant workshop; Arts Council employees will be more than willing to help with any questions affiliates may have.

Grant application workshops will be held after the opening of the Marketing and Program Grant. Affiliates are required to attend a grant application workshop to be considered for funding.

Where do The Arts Council grant funds come from?

Funds for The Arts Council grant programs come from the City of College Station, the City of Bryan, and the City of Navasota Hotel/Motel Occupancy Tax (HOT) Revenues, the Texas Commission on the Arts, and private donors.

What reporting schedule do you require for grant recipients?

All grant recipients receiving HOT funds are required to complete quarterly reports, regardless of whether funds were received or expended during that quarter. Quarterly report forms can be found on the grant website.

Rural Sub-grant recipients are required to complete a final one-page report along with an actual budget within thirty days of completion of the funded project.

How are funding decisions made?

Funding decisions are made by a grant review committee assembled by The Arts Council.
