Wherewithal Research & Project Grants | Washington Project for the Arts

Deadline October 31, 2021


Wherewithal Grants are a funding source for visual artists in the DC-area (DC;  Arlington, Alexandria, or Fairfax, counties VA; Montgomery or Prince George’s counties MD). Generously funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts as part of its Regional Re-Granting Program and managed by Washington Project for the Arts, these grants are intended to support a wide range of experimental and multidisciplinary practices, particularly those that emphasize collaboration and discourse. Since launching in 2019, Wherewithal Grants has supported 112 visual artists with a total of $160,000 in grants.

You can choose to apply for either a research or project grant depending on which best supports your practice at this time. Applications will be reviewed by an independent panel of artists and arts professionals with up to 12 grants awarded. The grant period is from January–December 2022.
