AHA Community Grants Program

The Arts & Humanities of Jefferson County, AHA, request proposals for Jefferson County projects or programs that seek financial assistance in either the arts or humanities. Project funding will be considered several times per year by AHA for credible projects within AHA guidelines.

Projects must demonstrate positive community impact, and demonstrate administrative practicality for completion. Proposals have upper financing limits of $2,000 for organizations and $800 for individuals, but may be funded at lower levels. Applications are reviewed by a panel, and awards are made by the Board of Directors of AHA. Consultation with the panel is strongly recommended prior to submission of an application.
