The completed electronic application form must be successfully submitted by 5:00 p.m. and hard copy materials must be postmarked or hand delivered by March 15, 2013.
Mailing materials to the IAC:
Due to the volume of mailed material received– particularly around deadlines – the Illinois Arts Council strongly recommends applicants opt for delivery services which provide tracking and confirmation on all applications and time-sensitive materials. It is the responsibility of the applicant to have proof of mailing for all materials sent to the Illinois Arts Council.
Include the Program Grant category to which you are applying in the first line of the address.

Hand-Delivering materials to the IAC:
IAC offices are open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. All visitors to state government offices in the James R. Thompson Center, including the Illinois Arts Council, will be required to submit to a security screening before being allowed access to the elevators. Visitors must show a valid government issued picture I.D. and pass through metal detectors. In addition, all bags and items carried by visitors will be searched by the Illinois State Police Protective Service Unit.
If you plan to hand-deliver your materials, do not seal the packaging as you will need to show the contents when you pass through security. It is highly recommended that you allow extra time for the screening process.
