2020 Arts Grants Announced

Idaho Commission On The Arts

Idaho – The Idaho Commission on the Arts announced today its Fiscal Year 2021 annual grants, totaling $544,000 to 77 organizations and schools spanning 24 communities throughout the state. Organizations and schools receiving grants will match their awards with locally generated funds.

Executive Director Michael Faison expressed his appreciation to Idaho’s elected officials, “We are grateful to Governor Little and our Idaho Legislators for their civic commitment and support of the Commission/s statewide programs. These grants open access for Idahoans to their artistic heritage and innovations in every region of our state. They engage Idaho youth in arts learning, in schools and in communities—especially important in these unusual times.”

Idaho Commission on the Arts’ Chair Steve Allred stated, “Idaho’s arts and cultural sector adds $2 billion in value to our state’s economy, comprises 2.8% of the state GDP, and supports 20,000 jobs, over 3,000 of these directly. In the coming year and under challenging circumstances, the creative programs delivered by Idaho’s ever-adaptive arts organizations will reach into every region of the state. They represent Idaho’s rich and resilient cultural legacy and our shared economic optimism.”

The list of 2021 annual grants follows.
