Houston Arts Alliance Awards More Than $3.2 Million In Grants To Area Artists
Gifts to 146 Artists to Enhance the Quality of Life and Tourism in Houston Region
The HAA Grants program provides funding and technical assistance to support nonprofit arts organizations of all sizes as well as individual artists from artistic disciplines ranging from experimental visual arts and performance groups, to cultural organizations that reflect Houston’s diverse populations.
“HAA is pleased to enable artists and arts organizations to thrive by connecting the nonprofit arts to the larger creative industry, the community and government,”
This round of HAA awards grants go to qualified arts and cultural organizations for both general operating support and arts projects. Individual artists receive awards through the Individual Artist New Works Fellowship Program which supports the development and presentation of new artistic works by local Houston artists to help advance Houston's reputation as a vibrant creative hub and a destination for cultural tourism.
HAA distributes grants supporting arts creation, production, marketing and infrastructure throughout the year. Guidelines for future funding can be found at www.houstonartsalliance.com/
