SFCA staff planning the new grants management system. Left to right: Public Information Officer Mamiko Carroll, Arts Program Specialist Denise Miyahana, Administrative Services Assistant Sara Beth Newell, and Executive Director Jonathan Johnson.
The State Foundation on Culture and the Arts FY2020-2021 Biennium Grants applications will be launching in February 2019.
The applications will be on a new temporary electronic format. This grants cycle is a transition as the SFCA will be procuring a new software system and developing a grants management system to manage all the SFCA grants including Biennium Grants, Artists in the Schools, Art Bento HiSAM education programming, Fellowships, Culture Learning, Professional Development, Folk and Traditional Arts Culture Grants, Apprentice Mentoring, and all others.
The intent of the change is to simplify the process for the grant applicant and streamline management of the grants resulting in cost savings which will be made available for additional grant funding.
The general timeline of the FY20-21 Biennium Grants process:
February 2019 Launch Application
March 2019 Applications Due
April 2019 Panel Review
May 2019 Board Approval
June 2019 Notification of Awards
This is the first major change to the Biennium Grants application process since 2005 and we hope that you will join us in this important and exciting transition. Questions? Contact Sara Beth Newell, SFCA Administrative Services Assistant, at (808) 586-0303 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
