Grant Applications

The United Arts Appeal offers Projects Pool grants to Chautauqua County organizations and to individual artists.


Eligible organizations must have not-for-profit status and may include libraries, municipalities, churches, and other community groups. 


An artist who has been a Chautauqua County resident for at least one year and works in any artistic discipline, including but not limited to crafts, dance, film, fiction, poetry, printmaking, sculpture, painting, video, play writing, performance, music composition and photography, may apply.  Funding priority will be given to those applicants who demonstrate that a Projects Pool grant would have significant career impact or promote artistic development for the individual artist.
