Funds At-Risk Youth grants support arts-based after-school or summer camp programs geared towards children in grades PK-12 who are considered at-risk. Projects should include hands-on learning experiences focused on performing, visual, traditional folk, and/or literary art for the participants. Verification that 51% or more of students participating are at-risk youth must be provided.
Applicants must be a nonprofit organization or government agency, library, nonprofit arts organization, or PK-12 school. Applications must have a single project focus. Applicants may not apply for funds for the same project in another Tennessee Arts Commission grant category in the same fiscal year.
