KCAIC announces Sept. 1, Nov. 7 deadlines for CEPS grant applications

The Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (KCAIC) has announced deadlines to apply for Creative Economy Project Support grants. Initial applications must be submitted by Sept. 1, and final applications by Nov. 7. To download an application form or learn more about guidelines for KCAIC programs, please visit
Initial applications consist of a short form that provides the Commission with a brief description of the proposed project concept and intended partnerships while the proposal is still in a work-in-progress state. Initial applications serve as a letter of intent and allow the Commission an opportunity to provide feedback to potential applicants before details are solidified for the final long form application.

The description for the Creative Economy Project Support program follows:

Creative Economy Project Support:
The Creative Economy Project Support program encourages dynamic partnerships among cultural, business and public sectors to help communities address cultural and economic development goals through a wide variety of creative place making initiatives. This highly competitive program leverages the creative assets intrinsic in Kansas communities to stimulate the local economy, strengthen the role of arts and culture, promote regional identity and enhance the quality of life for its citizens. Funds may be used to support a single activity or a suite of related activities that are not already supported through a current KCAIC program. Successful applications will include:

• Demonstration of a strong commitment to inter-sector collaboration
• Community engagement in economic and community development using other funding sources
• An active network of cultural nonprofits and involved citizens
• Planning and oversight by non-profit arts organizations and implementation with community partners
• A designated community member to serve as coordinator to communicate with the public and partners

Applicants must also demonstrate excellent artistic, educational and cultural value; responsiveness to their community; credible planning and evaluation strategies; long term economic impact; and rigorous financial and managerial accountability.
