NASHVILLE - - The Tennessee Arts Commission has announced that guidelines and applications are now available online (www.arts.state.tn.us) for several Fiscal Year 2012 grant categories (fiscal year begins July 1, 2011 and ends June 30, 2012).

Grant categories include: Arts Access (AA), Arts Education (Artist-in-Residence, Community Learning, Funds for At-Risk Youth, and Teacher Training); Arts Project Support (APS); Cultural Education Partnership (CEP); Major Cultural Institution (MCI); and Partnership Support (PS).
