Term of Contract:

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must meet the following requirements to be eligible for funding:
- Be a professional artist. The Greater Augusta Arts Council Project Grants to Individual Artists Program defines a professional artist as an individual generally recognized by his/her peers, critics, or other professionals as committed to producing art on a regular basis. Artists meeting this criterion are typically paid for their work, earning a portion of their living from their creative work.
- Be 18 years old or older.
- Students pursuing ANY degree are NOT eligible.
- Applicant has at least a two-year history of public engagement (performance), presentation (visual arts), or publication.
- Be the lead artist in every aspect of her/his proposed project.
- Applicants cannot be disbarred, suspended, or have any other exclusions or disqualifications from receiving federal funding.
- Be a US citizen with a social security number that will be provided upon notification of a grant award (on a W-9 form).
- Maintain a residence in the CSRA and expect to do so through the grant period.

The CSRA, for the purposes of this grant program, includes the following GA/SC Counties:
- Richmond, Columbia, Burke, Glascock, Jefferson, Lincoln, McDuffie, Taliaferro, Warren, and Wilkes (GA)
- Aiken, Edgefield, and McCormick (SC)

For this project grant, public art with physical alterations of public spaces (murals, sculptures, etc.) will not be considered.

Support to individuals may not include honorifics or fellowships, or other forms of funding for financial hardship, including but not limited to rent or food assistance or the general operating expenses of individual artists.

Grants will not be awarded to two or more parties for the same project, program, etc. Collaborative efforts will need to determine one eligible lead artist to be the applicant who will be responsible for the application, disbursement of funds to partners, and required reporting on the progress of the project if awarded.
