What is it?

The TranspARTation Grant enables Kentucky teachers and schools to offer students high quality arts experiences by providing transportation funding. Grants will be based on the mileage from the school building to the arts organization or performance venue and the number of buses necessary. Grant requests under $100 are ineligible.

Who’s eligible?

Any Kentucky school, public or private, that supports grades pre-K through 12, may apply.

What’s the deadline to apply?

Applications are reviewed quarterly.
Deadlines are: Aug. 15, Nov. 1, 2014 and Feb. 1, 2015, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time

If I receive a grant, what are my responsibilities?

    submitted to the arts council in a timely manner.
  2. Send a letter to each of your state legislators. (Sample)
  3. Acknowledge the Kentucky Arts Council in all public communications. (How?)
  4. Submit a final report within 30 days of the field trip, verifying the date of travel and number of buses, to receive funding.
