Office Partnership Grants

Office Partnership Grants

The mission of the Utah Division of Arts & Museums is to connect people and communities of Utah through arts and museums. By creating strategic partnerships with Utah-based nonprofit organizations that have complementary missions and resources, Utah Arts & Museums can more efficiently and effectively provide services for Utah art and museum organizations. The purpose of Office Partnership Grants is to leverage funding to provide training, networking, centralized marketing, professional development, technical assistance, model programs, or unique educational resources.

Because these are partnership grants, the grant application must be crafted with a Utah Division of Arts & Museums staff member and must contain mutually agreed upon goals and measurements. If you have questions about the Office Partnership Grant, you may contact the Utah Arts & Museums Grants Manager at 801-236-7550. Follow the links, below, to access the guidelines, the budget form, and the online grant application.

Capital Grant Requests to Utah Legislature

Utah Capitol BuildingArts organizations and museums now have a formal process to request state financial assistance for capital facilities projects. You should apply for prioritization of your capital facilities project funding through Utah Arts & Museums. Applications of your request will be forward to the appropriate board, either the Office of Museum Services Advisory Board or the Utah Arts Council Board of Directors. Each board will then provide the Governor’s Office and State Legislature a list of prioritized capital facilities projects for consideration when constructing state budgets.

Capital project funding requests are separate from grants reviewed/approved by the Office of Museum Services Advisory Board or the Utah Arts Council Board of Directors and administered by Utah Arts & Museums. The deadline for these requests is June 1 for the upcoming Utah Legislative Session (i.e., June 1, 2015 for the 2016 Legislative Session).

House Bill 236 Information

In 2009, the state legislature enacted H.B. 236 which changed the statutory duties of the Utah Arts Council Board of Directors and the Office of Museum Services Advisory Board. These statutory changes provides a mechanism for communities and community-based cultural organizations to request state financial assistance for capital projects. These boards will review applications for capital project funding requests and rank them based on the goals of the applicant, public benefit of the proposed project, and the strategic value of the project’s partnerships.

Prioritization of an application is not a guarantee of funding. That decision is ultimately up to the legislature. It does, however, provide the Governor’s Office and legislative fiscal analysts another level of review by subject-matter experts and allows applicants to secure validation of their efforts.
