Get Ready for the Next Jumpstarter Craft Innovation Grant Series!

We are excited to continue the Jumpstarter program which consists of four (4) grants of $3,000 each: two (2) in the summer and two (2) in the winter. The next deadline is on June 1, 2024. The purpose of the grants is to support craft artists who reside in the United States to pursue new directions or advance new ideas in their work. The goal of increasing equity, inclusion and diversity in the craft field is an important program focus.
