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 on 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!
