San D-
Many times, or most times, that I have been involved with requesting
money from public funds requires a grant request with how you will spend
the money if you receive it. Usually there are also grant interviews
and a laborious process attached. Within the process, you can initiate
your ground rules as an artist. I just recently received a local
'regional artist grant' which has trickle down money from the NCAC &
NEA. There are no strings attached, the piece/project that I am
creating will be mine. I will also receive a professional exhibition
from it.
As I said in an earlier post, I feel extremely 'fortunate', especially
as an educator, to have received such a grant, that is enabling me to
produce a piece that has been designed for 10 years, but would have
little chance of being realized without some significant support.

Artfully yours,
