General Operating Support

Strengthening the state’s cultural infrastructure

The General Operating Support (GOS) grant program provides funding for Kansas public and private non-profit arts and cultural organizations, including museums, local arts councils and commissions, statewide arts and cultural service organizations, and organizations that have cultural program activities in any of the art and cultural disciplines (music, dance, theatre, creative writing, literature, painting, sculpture, folk arts, photography, crafts, media arts, visual arts, programs of museums, and other such allied, major art forms). The organization’s mission must directly support arts and cultural programming.

All grant activities and expenditures must take place within the grant period, July 1, 2024 – June 30, 2025. Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. CST on Friday, February 23, 2024. See below for more information on eligibility, guidelines, and application details.

Request Amount:

$1,000 – $25,000 depending on eligibility requirements

Match Requirements:

KCAIC requires that all grants are matched at a minimum of 1:1 through a combination of cash and in-kind expenses. For example, if your grant request is $10,000, your organization would be expected to spend $10,000 in expenses from other non-state and non-federal sources towards the project, for total project expenses of $20,000. This can include any allowable in-kind goods or services. Applicant organizations based in a Rural Opportunity Zone may claim in-kind non-monetary donations as up to 100% of the required matching funds.

Who Qualifies:

  • Established 501(c)(3) arts organizations whose primary purpose is to produce, present, promote or serve the arts
  • Federally recognized tribal communities
  • Units of local governments

Note: Arts-based units of public entities must have their own discreet operating budgets and an advisory or governing board. Please see the guidelines for more information and other eligibility requirements.
