NALAC provides several grants for artists, ranging in award amount and grantee focus. The Project Grant gives equipment, funds for research and travel and professional career development, and is geared towards the development of a specific body of work. The Fellowship is meant for artists whose work impacts the Latino arts directly and intended to recognize an existing body of work, while also providing assistance for the hiring of assistants, cost of documentation, and living expenses.
