What is Rural Sub-granting?

The Arts Council of Brazos Valley Rural Sub-granting Program, sponsored in part by Mays Strategic Philanthropy, is designed to assist Arts Council affiliates located in the six rural counties of the Brazos Valley (Burleson, Grimes, Leon, Madison, Robertson, and Washington) with program-specific funding needs. Rural sub-grants are available for up to $2,500.00.

Purpose of the Rural Sub-grant

Rural sub-grant funds are available for a wide range of projects, with a focus on impacting children and families. In general they should serve to increase children's understanding and participation in arts, culture, or heritage program or be of an educational or instructional function. Inclusive, diverse, and cooperative projects involved partnerships with other organizations, artists, or local businesses are encouraged.
