Williamsburg Area Arts Commission Opens FY25 Grant Application

The Williamsburg Area Arts Commission is now accepting applications for Fiscal Year 2025 funding.

Area arts and cultural organizations who are registered as tax-exempt nonprofits are eligible to apply for special projects or general operating support. The deadline for submissions is 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, 2023. All details, including the WAAC application, grant guidelines and criteria, can be found online.

“All the arts – visual arts, music, theater, dance, and beyond – are important to the Williamsburg area community and are appreciated by diverse audiences of all ages,” WAAC Chair Tom Phelps said. “Our community both expects and appreciates the production of cultural and artistic opportunities, and enjoys efforts to provide events and programs in the area. The WAAC encourages artistic and cultural organizations to apply for financial assistance from the commission so that arts and arts appreciation may flourish in the Williamsburg area.” 

The WAAC is funded in partnership by the City of Williamsburg and James City County, as well as a state grant from the Virginia Commission for the Arts. WAAC serves at the pleasure of the City of Williamsburg and James City County in supporting excellence in the arts as it administers a grant application program for nonprofit arts organizations.
