The Regional Arts Commission (RAC) supports nonprofit organizations through both General Operating Support (GOS) and Program Support grants.
GOS grants provide unrestricted, renewable funding to support the day-to-day operations of nonprofit arts organizations that produce and present year-round programming.
Program Support grants provide aide for a one-time project or ongoing program that broadens and deepens participation in or access to the arts. If you are a new applicant to RAC grants, program support is the appropriate grant category.
To ensure you have the best experience, please download the RAC Grants Information Guide referenced throughout the website.
RAC supports individual artists of all disciplines through Artist Support grants and Artist Fellowships.
Artist Support grants provide direct funds for an artist’s projects, needs and creative opportunities. Artist Fellowships recognize artistic excellence and honor the work of seasoned artists, advance the work of mid-career artists and nurture the work of developing artists.
If your organization does not operate in St. Louis City or St. Louis County, please see our Organizational Resources. If you are an artist who does not reside in either St. Louis City or County, please see our Artists Resources.
