Overview of Grant Programs
Getting Ready to Apply
The Commission classifies all applicants into categories that determine eligibility for specific grant programs. TCA has automated this process in the online web grant system via the TCA Type Wizard. The Wizard is a series of questions that profiles your organization and then presents a customized list of TCA programs for which your organization is eligible. The basic characteristics the Commission uses to determine the appropriate category and level determination are:
- whether the applicant is an individual artist or a nonprofit organization
- the type of organization (i.e., arts, educational, government)
- the annual operating budget of the organization
First-time applicants should fax a copy of their IRS letter of determination to 512/475-2699. Be sure to include a phone number and contact name so TCA staff can call to set up a user name and password.
All applicants must apply online through the TCA grant system. For research purposes only, hard copies of all TCA blank application forms are available.
