The heart and soul of Alternate ROOTS is our MEMBERS, and only members have access to our generous grant programs. If you are planning on applying for Artistic Assistance in September, the deadline to join or renew your membership is July 31, 2022.

Already a ROOTS Member? Here’s how to check when your dues expire:

  • If you DO have a profile in ROOTS’ Member Directory, check out your “Membership End Date” (the day your dues are set to expire) on your profile. If you do not see your profile anymore, this means your membership has expired. This happens automatically and will reappear once your dues are current. 
  • If you DON’T have a profile in ROOTS’ Member Directory, set one up HERE. Your completed profile will then appear in the Member Directory and you can check out the status of your dues (via the step above!). Your completed profile will appear in the Member Directory in 1-2 days.

If your dues are NOT current or are set to expire before or during the month of August, 2022: renew them by July 31 to make sure you have access to the Fall 2022 round of Artistic Assistance grants. Artistic Assistance grant applications launch August 30 and the deadline to apply is September 30, 2022.
