Arts Support Program - Funding Application
The Fredericksburg Arts Commission (FAC) seeks to support both new and established arts events and projects in the City of Fredericksburg that celebrate and expand the arts in our community. Applications for arts support must be received by the FAC by March 1st, June 1st, September 1st, and December 1st. The FAC reviews applications in April, July, October, and January. All financial support is dependent on approval by the FAC and all applicants will be notified of the FAC's decision. 

Creative Communities Partnership Grant - Funding Application
The Fredericksburg Arts Commission announces its annual Creative Communities Partnership Grant opportunity for local non-profit arts organizations. Each year Fredericksburg City Council and the Fredericksburg Arts Commission work to bring this opportunity to the city with matching funds from the Virginia Commission for the Arts for the purpose of supporting the arts in our area. The cultural opportunities provided by local organizations who serve the arts and artists are important for creating vitality, community connectivity, and creative experiences for city residents and visitors alike. This grant is unique because art organizations may use these funds toward operational expenses, as opposed to specifying one project or event.

Any interested 501(c)(3) City-based arts organizations are invited to apply for this FY2020 VA Commission for the Arts Creative Communities Partnership Grant. Applications are available online at Please submit completed applications no later than close of business Friday, March 1, 2019.
