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.

RiNo Art District is welcoming applications for micro-grants. 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.

APPLY NOW

Grant recipients will also be given a free year of membership to RiNo Art District. Learn more about membership benefits HERE.

Applications will be considered immediately. Preference will be given to applications received before April 10th. Funds will be distributed within 30 to 40 days of selection. An application doesn’t guarantee funding. If you believe you could benefit from a micro-grant but do not meet the criteria, please contact support@rinoartdistrict.org for special consideration.
