[Regional Regranting Program]

The application portal for the next cycle of Wherewithal Grants is now open! DC-area artists may apply for support in areas of Project & Presentation and Research depending on which best supports your practice at this time. This year we are increasing the amount of Project & Presentation grants to $7,500! The deadline for applications is November 14, same as WPA's 2023-2024 Open Call.

$7,500 Project & Presentation Grants support ongoing or new projects that embrace unconventional or D.I.Y. values and will be presented publicly in the DC-area during the grant period. Project & Presentation grants are intended to directly support artists presenting work in spaces beyond commercial galleries, museums, or established non-profit art spaces.

$5,000 Research Grants are for DC-area artists to further their practices through ideation, research, and experimentation. Grant funds compensate you for your intellectual labor, support payment for other artists and thinkers for their time and contributions, and other research-related expenses.

The application deadline is Tuesday, November 14, 2023 at 11:59pm.

Applications will be reviewed by an independent panel of artists and arts professionals with up to 10 grants awarded. The grant period is from January–December 2024.
