NCHS has made available $300,000 for the arts this year. This is the 13th year that NCHS has provided funding for the arts community with awards totaling over two million dollars since 2004. Arts and cultural organizations in Benton, Carroll, Clinton, Fountain, Montgomery, Tippecanoe, Warren, and White Counties that are members of the Tippecanoe Arts Federation are eligible to apply.

Funds may only be used for capital projects and each applicant must be a member in good standing with the Tippecanoe Arts Federation and have 501(c)(3) status. In rare circumstances, public library arts and culture capital projects in rural, underserved communities may be eligible for consideration via a fiscal agent with 501(c)(3) status.

Acknowledge Your Funders

For this grant program, you MUST acknowledge your funders in one of two ways:

  1. Include the logos of the NCHS and TAF all promotional materials related to your funded project.
  2. If design or space limitations prevent the usage of logos, please include the following written acknowledgment:
    This project is made possible by the North Central Health Services and the Tippecanoe Arts Federation.

A third way of recognizing your supporters is through verbal acknowledgment during events or television, radio, or internet broadcasts. This is highly suggested!
