  12. 12. Q: Is there a limit on how much funding I can ask for? F.A.Q.’s A: Technically, no. However, there is a finite pool of funds and Orange County has 177 arts and cultural organizations plus artists who may apply for funding. We want to fund as many high-quality arts programs as possible. We recommend your requests range from $1,000-$3,000. Q: I need funding for multiple projects or programs. Should I compile all requests into one application, or submit multiple applications? A: For the sake of clarity, we would prefer for you to submit one application per program. Be as clear as possible with your request; we never want the grants panel to ask, “What exactly are they asking for?”
  13. 13. Q: I received a grant last cycle. Can I apply again this cycle? F.A.Q.’s A: Yes, unless you have not yet submitted a prior cycle’s report that is past due, or you failed to execute a formerly funded program. If this is case, please contact us at 919-245-2335. Q: I forgot a portion of my application. Will it still be considered? A: No. Out of fairness to applicants having submitted complete applications, incomplete applications will not be considered. We understand mistakes happen, and encourage you to submit your application at least one week in advance in order for us to review your application.
  14. 14. Q: What are the main tips you can offer to help me submit a great application? F.A.Q.’s Try to incorporate community involvement into your request. Even though this is no longer a requirement of the Artist Project Grants, applicants incorporating a great community benefit will score higher. Examples of 2017-18 funded Artist Project Grants: • Pam Baggett: Project Poetry! (funds allowed Pam to teach free poetry workshops) • Carter Hubbard: Floraffiti (funded program expenses and artist time for public art project) • Dawn Hummer: Freeform Weaving for Seniors (funds purchased looms for Dawn’s free weaving classes) • Renzo Ortega: Clases de Arte en Espanol (funded artist time to teach free Spanish art classes)
  15. 15. Q: What are the main tips you can offer to help me submit a great application? F.A.Q.’s Two primary needs for Orange County Arts Community: ARTS SPACE and EQUITABLE ACCESS
  16. 16. Q: What are the main tips you can offer to help me submit a great application? F.A.Q.’s Be clear and concise. A grant application is never a place for flowery language. In addition, don’t water down your application with tons of work samples; rather, include several of the highest quality examples. Quality is much more important than quantity! Try new things. Generally, the OCAC board prefers to fund new, innovative projects each year rather than the same project multiple times or in multiple forms. If your project will take place at a public location or require the involvement of community partners, make sure to get letters of support so the panel knows you have their partnership!
