The Arts & Humanities Touring Grants, which help offset the cost of bringing quality performers, storytellers and more into your community, will open next month.

Money is awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis and may run out quickly. Apply early to ensure funding for your event. All events must occur between Dec. 1, 2014 and August 2015.
