The Illinois Arts Council Agency ( IACA ) has announced the release of fiscal year 2021 guidelines and application materials for its open deadline programs: Artstour & Live Music, Short-term Artists Residency, and Individual Artist Support.
There is no hard deadline date for these programs; applications will be accepted until funds are fully committed, or by May 15, 2021, whichever comes first. All three open deadline programs will accept applications for activities occurring through Aug. 31, 2021. Applications must be received by the IACA no fewer than eight weeks prior to the project starting date.
IACA has updated the guidelines for each of these grants to allow for optimal safety of artists and audiences given COVID-19. Please read the guidelines carefully and reach out to the appropriate program director with any questions.
