ALL APPLICANTS PLEASE NOTE:

It has come to our attention that the project budget template in Grants Gateway contains a formula error in line 27. The formula bar for the INCOME TOTAL line does not include line C26; i.e. “Other Revenue,” which may result in incorrect INCOME TOTAL.

Fortunately, this may be resolved through a simple, one-minute fix that should not disrupt the rest of the document.

Double left click in the C27 box,
The formula     =SUM(C15,C25)     will show.
Change the formula to read    =SUM(C15,C25,C26)  and hit enter
The error will then be resolved.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact Program Staff with any questions regarding the Project Budget form.


By definition, folk arts are traditional cultural expressions through which a group maintains and passes on its shared way of life. They are practiced within and among ethnic, regional, occupational, and religious communities as well as other kinds of groups with a common identity. Traditional folk arts express a group's sense of beauty, identity, and values. Folk arts are usually learned informally through performance, by example, or in oral traditions among families, friends, neighbors and co-workers rather than through formal education. The practice of folk arts by traditional artists stems from their birthright, community membership or direct participation in the life of a community. Never static, folk arts change as they are adapted to new circumstances while they maintain their traditional qualities. The best folk artists work within artistic conventions shaped and refined over time while creating innovations recognized by other community members.
