What is a Micro Grant?
Generally speaking, a Micro Grant is a very small grant – $100 or less – made to an art educator or other individual who teaches visual art to young people “for art’s sake.” A Micro Grant will be awarded primarily based on need, but the application review panel may consider the project’s creativity and the number and age of young people benefitting from the award.
Who can apply for a Micro Grant?
A Micro Grant will be made only for projects taking place in Delhi Township or in the Holt Public Schools District with a strong preference for projects taking place within Holt Public Schools.
How can a Micro Grant be used?
The award must be used to obtain supplies or other material resources needed to complete the applicant-specified visual arts project. An award must not be used to help pay for field trips, professional development, etc.
How do I apply?
Complete the form, and return it at least 30 days before the award is needed. By submitting the application, you are certifying that the information provided on the application is accurate and truthful.
If I receive an award, are there any other obligations?
If you receive an award, you must complete a report of 150 words or fewer to the Arts Council about how the Micro Grant was used. This report may take the form of an email describing how the project was completed, how many students participated, etc. Photos are welcome.
