Arts Funding for Nonprofits

This program is made possible in part by a grant administered by the Ocean County Cultural & Heritage Commission from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. This grant is redistributed to local nonprofit organizations based in Ocean County to facilitate excellence in the arts though a competitive, peer review process. The Local Arts Program grants for funding from January 1 through December 31 are now available beginning in July of each year.

Submit online or download the forms and guidelines here or contact the Commission office directly for the forms and guidelines to be mailed to you.
