Special Funding Intiative

The New Jersey State Council on the Arts and New Jersey Historical Commission provide support to arts and history organizations through funding administered by the Ocean County Cultural & Heritage Commission. Thanks to an unprecedented increase in funding from the state of New Jersey, the Ocean County Cultural & Heritage Commission is offering a Special Funding Initiative for the first time in FY 2022.

The Initiative offers a rolling deadline throughout the year, simplified request process, and short time frame from request to award. The Special Funding Initiative Program is intended as an introduction to the Local Arts Program (LAP) and County History Partnership Program (CHPP) grant programs.
