The agency gives preferences to projects that meet the following criteria:

Arts and humanities in times of crisis

Literature and the arts define who we are as human beings. This is all the more apparent during times of crisis, such as the current pandemic.

CAHA seeks projects that take into account the role and value of their artistic practice in times of crisis.

Keep your distance

Exhibitions, showcases, concerts, recitals, book readings and poetry slams require an audience. How do artists present their works and keep their distance?

ACHA calls for projects that use technologies such as internet streaming, podcasts, shows and other vehicles to bring a product to the community while keeping their distance.

Support the arts and humanities

With resources pushed to the limit, how can artists make their practice more sustainable?

Projects can use recycled or reused materials and / or natural resources found on Guam. How can artists participate in a circular economy? This grant line is also open to projects that use or discuss the theme of ‘sustainability’.

Arts and humanities, identity and social justice

In “The Art of Social Justice”, Maria X. Martinez says: “Artists don’t just document social change; they promote it, inform it and shape it. Whether through music, plays, graphics, paintings, songs, films, media, architecture, textiles, jewelry, photography, poetry, sculpture, pottery, landscapes, writing, speech or dance, art is powerful. Art is the intellectual foundation of social change; nowhere is there more potential and need for art than here and now.

The agency looks for projects that promote social justice, reduce disparities, bring people together and build healthy neighborhoods.

In lieu of an in-person workshop, applicants should view the ACHA Grants Workshop PowerPoint at Submit applications by 11:59 p.m. on July 30 via the Submitted platform.
