Rotating every year with the NJ Historic Trust and NJ Council on the Arts, FY 2021 is a NJ Council on the Arts year for Capital Facilities & Institutional/Financial Stabilization Grants. To be eligible, an organization must first be designated as "qualified" by the New Jersey Cultural Trust.

  2. Institutional/Financial Stabilization Project: a project that addresses financial and operational challenges or helps build greater operational capacity.
