Austin Creative Classroom Fund applications now Available !

Applications for the Austin Creative Classroom Fund (ACCF) are now available for teachers and school staff! The ACCF Fund exists to support the development of arts-rich schools in the Austin Independent School District and to expand creative learning opportunities for students. 

The fund offers three funding levels:

Targeted Project Grants (typically $500 - $10,000): Strategic grants funding targeted outcomes usually modest in scope and scale, often impacting one or more grade levels, subject areas or a specific subset of the school’s population. These grants are the easiest to apply for and receive with simple post-project reporting requirements.

Creative Catalyst Grants (typically $10,000 – $30,000): Medium scale grants designed to catalyze a program or an initiative that results in a significant impact for the campus. Typically these grants will provide the resources to take an existing program to the next level or start an important new initiative. Successful Creative Catalyst grants will consider sustainability of the project after this grant cycle and be subject to higher post-project reporting requirements. Typically, only a few Creative Catalyst grants will be awarded, therefore this will be a very competitive category.

Transformational Grants (typically $30,000 – $100,000): Large scale grants that have the potential to transform a campus through creative learning. This funding category supports innovative approaches that have the capacity to improve quality of creative learning for all students at a campus. Successful Transformational Grants will consider sustainability of the project after the grant cycle and be subject to the strictest post-project reporting requirements. Only one or two of these grants will be awarded, making this the most competitive category.

Deadline : Friday, March 22, 2013 (midnight).
