New Hampshire State Council on the Arts is accepting applications to the Youth Arts Project Grants: For Creative Youth Development program.

Youth Arts Project (YAP) Grants fund high-quality educational opportunities in the arts. Arts learning fosters positive social and emotional skills and bolsters creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. YAP grants broaden access to diverse forms of artistic and cultural practices and can engage youth in contributing to community goals. Grants fund programs in all arts disciplines including dance, theater, media, music, visual arts, craft, and creative writing.

Grant Requirements
Applicants are required to:
  • Clearly articulate your plan for making the program accessible for youth of all abilities and underserved populations. Identify core participants, consult with special education professionals if applicable, and develop accommodations as needed.
  • Describe how the program is responsive to the academic and cultural needs of the youth being served. For example, the program may:
o Provide experiences in diverse artistic disciplines
o Reflect the racial, cultural, and aesthetic background of the youth population
o Broaden access to artistic disciplines from diverse cultural traditions
o Be designed with input from the youth being served

Applicants are encouraged to:
  • Foster deep connections within the community by establishing partnerships and collaborations between organizations, artists, youth, and schools.
