All notification of TPAC grant making will be made in our bi-monthly News & Opps e-newsletter and on the TPAC website.

TPAC GRANTMAKING IS SUSPENDED for the following grant the next fiscal year:

  • GOS: Asset Building Grant- 2014-2015

About the TPAC Grant Program


The Grants Program provides financial support to individual artists, community-based arts projects, and arts organizations operating throughout Tucson and Pima County. Grant awards begin with an application process that includes evaluation by staff, and then a peer and community panel review. The panel process is open to the public.

TPAC works to establish new partnerships and funding sources that positively impact the community. Recent successes include relationships with local and national foundations to support funding for the arts.
