The Southern Arts Fund

The 2021 Southern Arts Fund (SAF) is made possible through an Illinois Arts Council Agency's Community Arts Access program that offers grant opportunities to artists and non-profit organizations dedicated to arts programming and community engagement throughout Southern Illinois.

Artists and organizations wishing to provide thoughtful and accessible arts programming and outreach for their communities are encouraged to apply. Applicants eligible for SAF grants include, but are not limited to, cultural arts groups, community music groups, theatre groups, dance collectives, film/video, and literary groups, artist collectives, libraries, public and private schools, and other community cultural providers. Individual artists may also apply to support programs that include significant public outreach. All programs must be Covid-19 compliant. A compliant statement will be required.

Grants typically range between $2000 - $3500. Budgets should demonstrate additional funds supporting the proposed project.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to read the following materials in full before beginning the application. CCA staff is available to answer questions about the program or the application itself.
