Houston Arts Alliance

Grants For Individuals


Houston Arts Alliance recognizes that a city's excellence in the arts is enhanced through the encouragement and support of local artists and their engagement in creative endeavors. The Individual Artist Grant (IAG) Program seeks to support the development and presentation of new artistic works by local Houston artists to help advance Houston's reputation as a vibrant creative hub and a destination for cultural tourism. IAG provides opportunities through a competitive application and review process. Applications for these grants are reviewed by external peer review panels composed of inclusive groups of artists, arts professionals and community volunteers selected for their expertise and objectivity.

Individual artists approved for a grant will enter into an agreement with Houston Arts Alliance that outlines the arts activities that will be supported through grant evaluations and accountability requirements.
