New Grant Opportunity

Courtesy of, which sends out an e-blast every week or so, below are grant opportunities that may be of interest to y'all.

Grants to Non-Profits Supporting Under-Recognized Artists
"The Harpo Foundation gives grants to nonprofit institutions that support artists who are under-recognized by the field. Proposals to the foundation can take the form of installations, public interventions, residencies and exhibitions where the artist is commissioned to create new work. Projects and work that advance and cross the boundaries of media and artistic disciplines will be given first consideration. Grants will usually not exceed $10,000. Deadline: April 1, 2009."

Strategic Opportunity Stipends from NYFA
Strategic Opportunity Stipends (SOS), a project of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), working in collaboration with arts councils and cultural organizations across New York State, are designed to help individual artists of all disciplines take advantage of unique opportunities that will significantly benefit their work or career development. Literary, media, visual, music and performing artists may request support ranging from $100 to $600 for specific, forthcoming opportunities that are distinct from works in progress. Deadline: February 5, 2009 for opportunities occurring between March 1 and June 30, 2009.
