FSA awards three types of grants to members
The FSA Event Grant of up to $200 is available to member Guilds, Story Groups and Chapters of the Florida Storytelling Association. Grant funds are offered to help local groups produce events open to the public and to increase community awareness of storytelling and of the local group. Funds can be provided to assist in hiring presenters, securing an appropriate facility, renting sound equipment and publicizing the event. These event grants are designed to provide a financial safety net to encourage local groups to produce an event showcasing the art and craft of storytelling.

Grant funds are offered to help local groups create workshops of interest to storytellers in their area and/or foster social and professional interaction between storytellers in the region.
