Grants

The Norfolk Commission on the Arts and Humanities awards grants to not-for-profit organizations that benefit the citizens of Norfolk. Grants can be for general operating support or for specific projects.  Organizations may apply for either general operating support or project support, but not both. City of Norfolk departments and organizations receiving municipal operating funds are not eligible for funding. The current grant applications, guidelines, and financial forms are available below to download.

The Commission has a once a year grant cycle. Grant applications are due Friday, March 23, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. This is a receipt deadline, not a postmark deadline.

Applicants are encouraged to call Debra Burrell, Arts Manager, at 757-664-4330 or email artscommission@norfolk.gov with any questions.
