Each year, Starkville Area Arts Council has a small pool of discretionary funds that are awarded to support art projects or art organizations in Oktibbeha County, MS. Awards may be used for anything that aligns with one of our two program areas (Art Education & Outreach or Creative Economy) and that fits our mission to build a strong, creative, connected community through art.
Funds must be used within SAAC's current fiscal year. The Board has the ultimate discretion to deviate from its own guidelines in order to satisfy its mission or comply with legal requirements. Please answer questions as fully as possible. We welcome questions in advance of completing the application form.
Applications will be accepted until all funds have been allocated OR until the application deadline posted on the website, whichever comes first. NO LATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED. Decisions will be made quarterly, so please plan your needs accordingly.
