The Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts (MOCA) is accepting applications from non-profit organizations on Oahu seeking grants for the creation of new and original artistic works.


Awards are available up to $5,000.  The deadline for submittal of applications is Thursday, August 23, 2007, 4:30 p.m.


Grants are available in the following fields: dance, theater, music, and literature.  Applicants must be tax-exempt, charitable 501(c)(3) organizations (as defined by the Internal Revenue Code) in the City and County of Honolulu.  The projects must benefit the people of Oahu.  Projects must take place between December 1, 2007, and November 30, 2008.


“The Production Grant Program is the only one in the state dedicated to the creation of new artwork,” said Mayor Mufi Hannemann. “Past awardees have created wonderful works that showcase the artistic richness of our Honolulu.  I encourage community organizations to use this opportunity to join the City in supporting and perpetuating the arts.”


Only one grant will be awarded to an organization in any one fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).  Funds are not granted for scholarships, to benefit individuals, or for religious programs.  Grants are generally not approved for conferences, festivals, or operating support.
