The JPMorgan Chase Arts in Our Communities Regrant supports:

(1) Traditional artists and communities from immigrant groups working in a range of disciplines: music, dance, material arts, narrative and foodways, that are working to help preserve and pass down their cultural heritage.

(2) Artists and arts organizations working in collaboration with communities to explore issues of immigration and/or share traditions from their culture that continue to take place on Staten Island.

The grant must culminate in a public display or performance of the artist’s or craftperson’s work.

*NEW* The JPMorgan Chase Achieve Your Mission (AYM) Regrant supports:

The primary goal of the grant, is to help nonprofits pinpoint the needs and goals of the organization, and determine a clear and realistic plan to meet those goals for long-term organizational growth.

In conjunction with the $3000 award, grantees will receive up to 20 hours of professional consultant time, provided by COAHSI. The consultant will meet with the grantee organizations to create a plan of action based on the original application, assessing the needs of the organization, and the best way to meet those needs in respect to the grant award. The consultant will act as a coach and advisor to the organization throughout the project. Only eight (8) grants will be awarded.

What will be funded:

Arts and culture nonprofits AND nonprofits with primary missions unrelated to arts and culture but offer arts and cultural programming may apply for arts-related projects which will increase their capacity to engage new communities, increase their capacity to provide art services, and increase their outreach.

Requests must fall into one of the following categories:

    • Technology (i.e. Software/Equipment purchases and upgrades)
    • Marketing (i.e. Social media campaigns; branding; logo redesign; website)
    • Staff Development (i.e. staff & board training)
