Public Value Partnerships logo


Public Value Partnerships between Montana non-profit arts organizations and the Montana Arts Council champion the fact that the arts are of benefit to all the citizens of Montana and are worthy of state and federal investment.

The deadline for application was April 3, 2015 for the July 1, 2015-June 30, 2019 grant period.
The applications for returning and new applicants will be reviewed June 4, 2015 in Helena.
Information about the panel review process is provided here.

Public Value Partnerships provide overall operating support toward the educational mission of Montana non-profit arts organizations that have had their 501(c)(3) status for a minimum of five years and have at least one half-time paid staff member.

The program supports arts organizations with strong operations - including stable management, ongoing assessment and evaluation and high artistic quality for the communities being served. These grants also fund overall operating support for arts programs of tribal governments and universities. In these cases, the organizations can use either government or university non-profit status.
