I am very grateful for the [grant], as it has allowed me to pursue a project that continues to surprise me . . . I believe that pursuing the project on this new level will produce an incredibly vulnerable and powerful outcome.  —Zach Kleyn, 2014 grant recipient

Connecting Artists and Communities

Initiated in Los Angeles in 2013 as the former YoYoYo Grant and replicated in New York City in 2015, the Artist Community Engagement (ACE) Grant provides financial support—individual grants ranging from $750–$1,500—to artist projects that are community-based and foster communication, community participation, and cultural exchange.

The grant makes possible a wide range of project formats, including panel discussions, artist talks, public presentations, workshops, web-based activities, lectures, screenings, publications, and other public events or cultural exchanges. We support projects that encourage and facilitate cultural or traditional sharing creatively—locally or across borders—as well as projects that broaden audiences in a specific cultural or geographic community.


Application is by invitation only. Only artists who are nominated to Rema Hort Mann Foundation’s Emerging Artist Grant, and who did not receive an Emerging Artist Grant, are eligible to apply during the cycle in which they were nominated. Nominated artists may apply as an individual or collaborative group.

Selection Process

An independent, city-specific selection jury reviews and scores applications. The jury, comprised of arts professionals and artists, rotates annually. Applications are scored based on the following criteria:

  • Artistic merit
  • Project feasibility
  • Potential for community impact
  • Diversity

Rema Hort Mann Foundation is committed to maintaining diversity in its grant programs in terms of cultural background, geographic distribution, and areas of expertise. Jurors are not appointed to represent particular geographic areas or special interests, but are expected rather to use their knowledge of the arts in their deliberation and recommendations across media and genres.
