The Folk and Traditional Arts (FTA)grant program intends to redirect resources to build capacity at the local level by proposing to fund one Administering Organization (AO) that will regrant funds, provide technical assistance, and/or build capacity with artists and arts organizations in support of folk and traditional arts expressions.
The AO will work directly with artists who belong to family, ethnic, occupational, religious, and/or regional cultural communities that practice traditional art forms. The forms of traditional expression can include but are not limited to: crafts, music, dance, ritual, and technical skills.
This program centralizes local artists, and their artistic processes as vehicles for community vitality. The CAC is ideally looking to fund one AO that has demonstrated capacity for statewide and regional reach. This funding opportunity recognizes that artists are integral to healthy communities, and that the arts are a societal cornerstone that brings people together, builds community, and fosters social progress.
