Culture and arts production grants available

Honolulu – Two grant programs are available for cultural and arts organizations seeking support for newly developed artistic works or the preservation of cultural heritage through artistic works, and to provide continuing support for projects.

The Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts (MOCA) is requesting proposals for the Mayor’s Production Grants Level I and Level II.  Level I grants award up to $5,000 to assist organizations in developing new works in the fields of dance, theatre, music, short film and literature.  Level II grants provide continued support for on-going works that have received MOCA grant awards between Fiscal Year 2008 and 2013 (July 1, 2008 – June 30, 2014).

The grants will be awarded to organizations located in the City and County of Honolulu for projects benefiting the people of Oahu.  Grant support is intended to provide partial funding for a project.  Grants are limited and highly competitive.  The deadline for proposals for both grants is Friday, November 1, 2013 at 4:30 p.m.

To be eligible for a grant, applicants must be tax exempt, publicly supported, and a charitable organization as determined by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  Organizations may apply for either or both grants, however, will only be awarded one grant.  Guidelines and applications are available through MOCA, Mission Memorial Building, 550 South King Street, 2nd Floor, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813 and at  For information call (808) 768-6622.
