The Office of Arts & Culture’s Cultural Facilities Fund is designed to support capital projects that improve Seattle’s arts spaces in significant and lasting ways. Our goal is to help Seattle-based organizations build and improve their facilities in ways that will ultimately advance their missions and strengthen Seattle’s cultural scene. Grant requests can be made for up to $50,000.
The online application and guidelines are available at http://www.seattle.gov/arts/
Eligible organizations must have at least a three-year operating history as a legally established not-for-profit organization, have control of the facility through ownership or a longer-term lease, and demonstrate a record of ongoing artistic or cultural accomplishments in Seattle. Half of the funding for the facility’s project must be in place before applying. Projects must be able to take place and be completed between November 2016 and December 2017.
