Using Our VCA Funding in Virginia

Andrew and his bandmates have been part of the Virginia Commission for the Arts Touring Assistance Program since 2010. Eligible presenters in Virginia can be reimbursed up to 50% of the band's fees for concerts and workshops until the band's funding allocation for that period is used up. Once that happens, waitlist funds sometimes can come available late in the year for the first six months of the following year.

Eligible presenters are those that produce, present, or support, dance, literary arts, media arts, music, theater, visual, and related arts, and are one of the following :

  • not-for-profit and exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(a) including 501(c)3
  • units of government (municipal summer concert series, for instance)
  • educational institutions
  • local chapters of tax exempt national organizations


Any not-for-profit organization meeting the eligibility criteria can apply to receive a touring assistance grant to support these activities. Grants are made to the presenter (sponsor), not to the touring artist(s).

Eligible presenters can download the forms here.
