The City Arts Grants are designed to provide financial support for arts programs and projects in Salt Lake City that merit public funding. There are five City Arts Grants Categories, each with its own eligibility standards, guidelines, and review criteria.
The Salt Lake City Arts Council, founded in the late 1970s, was created to ensure that the community established a local arts organization to provide public programming and support for the arts. The organization has developed a balance between producing programs and supporting other arts activities throughout the City through grant funds.
The mission of the Arts Council is to promote, present, and support artists, arts organizations, and arts activities in order to further the development of the arts community and to benefit the public by expanding awareness, access, and participation. X
