NJ Department of State Grant Opportunities In Arts Education

The Council's Arts Education Program is an expression of its strong, ongoing commitment to the goal of quality arts education for all New Jerseyans and of its unshakeable belief that arts education is fundamental to a sound and complete education for all students.

To achieve this goal the Council works with a broad array of partners and collaborators including the NJ Department of Education and seeks in all that it undertakes to help schools meet the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards in the Visual and Performing Arts as well to bolster curriculum in the literary arts. The Council seeks to achieve these goals through three principal means:

  • A battery of Arts Education Cosponsored Programs carried out in partnership with numerous private nonprofit organizations that place teaching artists in schools and after school settings, support teacher training, artist training, education reform, arts education advocacy and the development of model schools;
  • Grants that include General Operating Support and Special General Program Support in the category of Arts Basic to Education and Arts Education Special Initiative Grants to discipline-specific organizations to encourage their greater involvement with and impact on New Jersey schools;
  • Funding policies and overall grant support that encourage, reward and help underwrite the vast array of arts education programs provided by arts organizations and community groups.
