History & Purpose
Berwick Arts Association aims to inspire and nurture the human spirit through art and community pride.  The Association seeks to provide community support, funding, and sustainability for art projects in the Berwick area.  

Established in 2021, the “Call for Art” was created as a funding mechanism for art projects.  Funding provided in the form of a grant will support a variety of project costs including, but not limited to paint, supplies, artist fees, and marketing initiatives.

Service Area
Berwick Arts Association supports art in Columbia County, primarily Berwick Borough and surrounding municipalities.
Guidelines & Approach.  

Priority Areas
The Berwick Arts Association seeks to fund projects that promote:
the mission of the Berwick Arts Association
awareness and visibility of art in the community
local artistry
priority impact areas including health, history, culture, and community pride
concentrated efforts in creating an Arts District area of Berwick

Size of Grants
Grant funding is determined on an individual project basis.  The majority of grant projects will be between $1,000-5,000.

Duration of Grants
Grants awards should be expended within one-year of the grant award date.

Application Process
Groups or artists interested in submitting an art project for funding consideration may complete a digital application form.  The Board of Directors will review and rank each project as it relates to the above priority areas and criteria.  Since funding is limited, projects may be approved and placed on a waiting list for future funding as it becomes available. Grant awards will vary on funding availability annually by the discretion of the Berwick Arts Association Board of Directors.

Applications may be submitted on a rolling basis and will be reviewed quarterly by the Berwick Arts Association Board of Directors.  Artists whose projects are selected will be asked to sign a contract setting out the responsibilities of each party.

Payments will typically be released in two increments, half at the start of each project and the remainder upon project completion. Recipients are required to submit receipts or invoices to the Berwick Arts Association for payment.  A distribution documentation form will be provided to each grantee for record keeping.  All distributions will be approved by the Berwick Arts Association Board.  Each grant funded project must provide a monthly update to the Berwick Arts Association for inclusion and review at Board meetings.

Artists whose projects are selected will be asked to sign a contract setting out the responsibilities of each party including, but not limited to, start and completion dates, method and times of payments, reporting and control of work site.
