HOW SHOULD I REPORT CHANGES TO MY APPLICATION DUE TO COVID-19 RESPONSE MEASURES?
It is the Arts Council’s goal to disburse all awarded grant funds to every grantee and we will work with you to ensure all funds are received for your arts programming. As a reminder, the City Arts Grants timeline is September 1 through August 31, so you if you need to make changes or reschedule anything, you have through August 31 to do so.
Additionally, the Arts Council is WAIVING THE 1:1 CASH MATCH REQUIREMENT. This means that you do not need to secure additional funding to complete your project. While many grantees will have already secured additional funds or need them to complete a project, the Arts Council is not requiring a cash match for the remainder of the current 2019-2020 grant cycle. The match will be required for future grant cycles.
Here is a list of questions that will help you determine if you will need to submit a CHANGE REQUEST FORM or to include the description of changes in the Final Report Form:
If you need to complete a Change Request Form, you will need to email the completed PDF from to Kelsey Ellis at firstname.lastname@example.org. Staff will then review the form and notify the primary contact of approval status via email. This form is not a final report. All grantees will still need to submit a Final Report Form through the online grants portal by September 30, 2020.
Please contact Kelsey Ellis (email@example.com) with any questions. As our staff is working remotely, email communication is best and please allow for a day or two for email responses.
