The Illinois Arts Council Agency is accepting applications for the Fiscal Year 2024 Rebuild Illinois Cultural Capital Planning Grants. Projects can be submitted through the online Salesforce system until Oct. 25.
The program helps organizations that provide arts programming get the objective information and analysis they need before they commit their organization’s energies and financial resources to a facilities project.
Grants will support project related activities with awards ranging from $5,000 – $50,000.
Examples of projects that may be considered for funding include architectural planning and design, site selection, feasibility studies, expansion planning, energy efficiency planning, accessibility and ADA planning.
Applicants must also:
- Have pre-qualification status through the State of Illinois Grantee Portal. Please follow the link to the IACA’s Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA) page for details.
- Verify compliance with all eligibility requirements.
- Confirm or register for a Unique Entity ID (UEI) in their SAM.gov account.
An Online Webinar will be available for applicants on Sept. 8 at 11 a.m. Pre-registration is required.
Following the webinar, a recording will be posted on the IACA website and IACA staff are available via a drop-in video on WebEx: Sept. 29 at 11 a.m.
