New Jersey State Council on the Arts

New Jersey State Council on the Arts

In 1966, the legislature passed and the governor signed a law creating the NJ State Council on the Arts and directing us to do all that is necessary and appropriate to: support, encourage, and foster public interest in the arts; enlarge public and private resources devoted to the arts; promote freedom of expression in the arts; and facilitate the inclusion of art in every public building in New Jersey.

For FY 2021, qualified NJ arts organizations may submit an application for an Institutional/Financial Stabilization Project: a project that addresses financial and operational challenges or helps build greater operational capacity.

Whether you're an artist, arts worker, audience member, or advocate, your voice is vital to making sure the arts are included in New Jersey's recovery from COVID-19.

Arts Council Logo

During the COVID-19 crisis, the Arts Council will be compiling resources for artists and organizations who are experiencing personal or business losses due to the economic impact of the pandemic.
