Will your organization or group be producing publicly accessible arts programming within Tacoma city limits in 2018? If so, you might want to take a look at our Arts Projects funding program. Arts Projects funding ranges from $1,000 to $5,000, and supports community projects that focus on the arts.

Applications are due by Monday, November 6, 11:59 pm.

Past funding has supported a variety of projects including, but not limited to, arts components of community festivals; arts workshops or demonstrations; dance, theater, and music performances and workshops; film festivals; youth-focused arts programming; arts-focused cultural and historical events; visual art exhibits; and literary events. Funded events must take place between Jan. 1 – Dec. 31, 2018.

Eligibility extends to private non-profit agencies with a 501(c) designation; organized groups of community volunteers, such as a business district or neighborhood council with an advisory body, business license and organizational bank account; educational institutions or for-profit businesses wishing to produce not-for-profit arts functions; and federally-recognized tribes or Native non-profits. Applicants are required to have offices within Tacoma or, if they have no office, a majority of the applicant’s activities must take place within Tacoma city limits. Other eligibility requirements apply. See guidelines for complete terms.

Funding for Arts Projects is determined through a competitive application process. Actual contract amounts will be based upon availability of funds and the review of each application as measured against evaluation criteria detailed in the guidelines.

Applicants are encouraged to attend a free workshop, which explains and addresses questions about the application and funding process. The workshop will be held Oct. 12, 2017, from noon – 1:30 p.m., in Tacoma Municipal Building, 747 Market Street, 2nd floor, room 248.
