The Arts and Culture Trust Fund Committee
encourages artists and arts organizations to prepare for grant applications
to go live in February 2022

In 2021, the City of Jersey City passed legislation for the Jersey City Arts and Culture Trust Fund: a dedicated stream of funding for the arts in our city. The Jersey City Arts and Culture Trust Fund Committee held its first meeting on October 18th, and has since been meeting weekly to develop the final outline for the Trust. The 10 person volunteer committee is thoughtfully addressing all aspects of the granting system, to ensure that the process is equitable and accessible to all Jersey City artists. We look forward to the first year of this innovative grant program supporting a group of inspirational and impactful programs and organizations.

Minutes from the committee meetings, as well as general information, can be found below.

Grant applications are expected to open in February 2022
Grants will be available for:
Arts Programming
Arts Education
Operational Grants
Individual Artist Fellowships

NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR THE GRANT REVIEW PANEL
Those with expertise in any art form or experience serving on grant panels for the arts are encouraged to apply. Stipend included.
Panelist may not apply for an Arts and Culture Trust Fund grant themselves during this grant cycle (2022).
