We will tend to give priority consideration to:
- New applicants or projects
- Proposals from local artists
- Proposals serving youth or seniors
- Projects promoting science literacy, including local environmental issues
- Collaborative projects between cultural groups and community organizations
- Art forms or humanities that are under-represented in the community
- Proposals to serve an underserved population
- Projects serving a range of social/ethnic/economic backgrounds
- Proposals showing a match of cash or in-kind services to the cash requested
We will tend to:
- Partially fund many projects rather than fully fund one.
- Limit the dollar amount awarded to any one applicant, although that limit will change based upon the number of grant requests, budget, and other factors.
- Not limit the number of applications that any one applicant can submit.
- Require applications to have cash or in-kind matches to maximize the grant dollars being distributed in the community.
- Set a ceiling on the percentage of a project that can be funded by the Council, although that limit will also change as described above.
- Limit the number of years any one applicant can come back consecutively for funding for the same project or program to three years, after which point they should become self-sustaining and free up grant money for other new projects.
- Not allow capital expenditure requests.
An online application will be available September 1, 2016
