Fast Track Grants are non-matching grants to Fairfax County arts organizations to fund one-time events or activities that fall outside the regular cycle or scope of Arts Council grants. Fast Track Grants can be used for the following expenses:
- Unexpected project costs that could threaten an organization’s ability to successfully carryout a project
- Equipment lease, purchase or repair that was not anticipated maintenance
- Unexpected artistic opportunity not part of regular season or artistic calendar
- Emergency situation as defined by the organization
Fairfax based non-profit arts organizations are eligible to apply for up to $1,000. Organizations may receive Fast Track Grants only once per 12-month period. No Match is required. A Fast Track Grant is paid in full at the time of award.
Applications will be internally reviewed by a panel of staff members and approved by the Executive Committee of the Arts Council Board of Directors. Applicants will be notified of their grant status within 30 days of receipt of the application.
“The new Fast Track Grants program presents an exciting new tool for Fairfax County’s small arts organizations to quickly execute programs and services, and fund unforeseen needs. These grants are just one more way the Arts Council can effectively serve our local arts community.”
— Linda S. Sullivan, president and CEO, Arts Council of Fairfax County
