CFSJC Hosts Regional IAC Grant Review Panels April 24 and April 26, 2023

Panel Will Be Conducted Virtually, Open to the Public

Through its Regional Arts Partnership with the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC), the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County will host two Arts Project Support (APS) grant review panels open to the public on Monday, April 24, 2023. The panels will be held at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. EST. On Wednesday, April 26, 2023, the Community Foundation will host one Arts Organization Support (AOS) grant review panel at 10:00 a.m.

These panels will review IAC Arts Project Support and Arts Organization Support grant requests from St. Joseph, Elkhart, Fulton, Kosciusko, Marshall, and Starke counties. Each eligible grant application will be reviewed and scored by a conflict-free panel of professional peers.

Those who wish to observe can do so through these YouTube links: Arts Project Support Panel 1, Arts Project Support Panel 2, and Arts Organization Support Panel. This is for observation only; applicants are not to contact panelists before, during, or after panel sessions. Approximately 5-7 minutes will be spent on each application.

The panels will also be recorded and made available through the IAC’s website after the events occur.
