NCHS Capital Grants

Funded with the generous support of North Central Health Services (NCHS), this grant program is administered by TAF and provides funding to nonprofit cultural organizations for capital projects. NCHS has made available $250,000 for the arts this year. This is the 17th year that NCHS has provided funding for the arts community with awards totaling nearly four million dollars since 2004.

Arts and cultural organizations in Benton, Carroll, Clinton, Fountain, Montgomery, Tippecanoe, Warren, and White Counties that are members of TAF are eligible to apply. Funds may only be used for capital projects and each applicant must be a member in good standing with the TAF and have 501(c)(3) status.
