RiNo Support Fund Micro-Grant Application

The RiNo Art District is a diverse community of galleries, artists, makers, creators, teachers, performers, and local businesses. These individuals and organizations are truly the heart and soul of RiNo, making it the vibrant, engaging, and independent place that we all love. We are committed to supporting these organizations during the COVID-19 crisis, and are dedicating $200,000 to a micro-grant program through the RiNo Support Fund. Grants will range between $500 and $2500.

To make this program as impactful as possible, funding will be available to:

  • Galleries, artists, makers, creators, musicians, performers, teachers, and creatives in all disciplines
  • Small locally owned businesses such as coffee houses, bars, restaurants, and independent gyms, etc.
  • All applicants must currently be and plan to remain in the RiNo Art District

Please apply with integrity, and respect the spirit as well as the letter of these requirements.

Reservation of Full Discretion

The RiNo Art District expressly reserves the right to accept, award, reject, and/or not to grant any and all grant applications in its sole and absolute discretion. Nothing in this program obligates the RiNo Art District to select specific grant applications or any applications at all. Applicants and awardees, not the RiNo Art District, shall be solely responsible for determining applicants’ or awardees’ tax status and tax implications of applicants’ receipt of grant funds as well as any and all required local, state and federal tax reporting and payment.

Successful applicants will be asked to complete and return a Grant Acceptance Agreement, a Media Release Consent form, indicating media preferences, and a W9 form, since we will only need those things from people who we award grants to.
