Catalyst Grants

Catalyst Grants

The Catalyst Grant program, previously known as the Arts General Operating (AGO) Grant Program, is TACA’s largest granting program. Catalyst Grants are designed to be a catalyst in strengthening Dallas’ vibrant arts community and to support art that is a catalyst for positive impact and transformation. Catalyst Grants provide unrestricted funding to nonprofit arts organizations in Dallas County to use as they see fit on an array of expenses, including program costs, salaries, administration, office expenses, technology, or to meet other operational needs.

Organizations interested in applying for a Catalyst Grant are required to submit a digital Pre-Application Form prior to the full application process. Before you can access the Pre-Application Form, please register for an account in the TACA Grants Portal with your own username and password (if you have not already done so in a prior TACA grant application).

The Pre-Application Form for the Spring 2022 Catalyst Grant cycle will be available by December 1, 2021.
